Speaking of Wayne…


I saw Weather Report on the 8:30 tour replete with Jaco - Hammersmith Odeon - four rows back in the front stalls

They played nonstop for three hours

They were amazing

Sadly, none of the album was taken form the Hammo gig

Take Five was the first Jazz record I have any early memory of hearing, must have late 50s or early 60s.

Where does the time go?

It's probably because of its popularity that Take Five has become so underrated. It's actually quite a 'difficult' composition (5/4). Hard for any rhythm session to follow through, yet it's Xanadu for improvisation. For me it's up there in the echelon of Great Jazz Music.

This evening, trying to read a book while worrying about the grandkid still being out, I listened to Stanley Clarke's eponymous album (1974). Not sure if the BCBosses allow this sortakinda fusion into a Jazz Club, so throw Sir Stanley out if you see fit. The music is so soothing that I managed to stop worrying for a few minutes. No, seconds.

Okay, Jazz aficionados I’m pretty much at the novice end of Jazz - I’ve got quite a few Miles, Coltrane and Coleman albums, a sprinkling of Grant Green, a McCoy Tyner, an Horace Silver, a Dave Brubeck, a Lee Morgan and an Eric Dolphy, as far as I remember - all of which I like.

So, if you can, please give me the names of 10 Jazz artists you would consider indispensable and if you can manage it, or be bothered, their albums which you would also describe as indispensable. Probably no need to include Miles, Coltrane or Coleman as I have quite a few as already mentioned.

Big ask perhaps but I would genuinely like to pursue an interest in some more Jazz.

To those who reply, thanks in advance.

Charles Mingus Most would probably say "Ah Hum" but for me Tijuana Moods is his best.
Dexter Gordon Go
John Coltrane A Love Supreme
Thelonious Monk Solo Monk (mainly because it's THE way to get to hear his unique approach), and anything with Pannonica on it.
Charlie Parker The Genius of Charlie Parker - series (8 albums, at least)
Chet Baker Chet Baker Sings
Milt Jackson/MJQ Fontessa
Dizzy Gillespie Jazz at Massey Hall (Dizzy as leader, with Parker and Mingus in the band
Wynton Marsalis J Mood (wanted to through in somebody who's still alive
Frank Zappa The Grand Wazoo

Ah Hum is very highly rated but I'd go for Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus or from earlier, Mingus Dynasty

Yes, that was weird Erik

The Grand Wazoo is a brilliant album

Full of music

Aynsley Dunbar On tubs- very underrated

Interesting: Theolonious Monk is one of five jazz musicians to have been featured on the cover of Time (the others being Louis Armstrong, Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington, and Wynton Marsalis)

Does that tell us anything?

It tells me that you've got way too much time on your hands ;-)

I put the Wazoo in there for fun. Maybe I shouldn't have because FZ is not 100% a Jazz muso.
But yes, it's a great Jazz album. They tried to get Keith Moon to play drums, but he was too busy practicing for his try-out with Soft Machine.

Joking aside this proves my point, Keith would have been completely lost and inadequate after the first few bars of Calvin

Another vote here for Mingus x 5. It doesn't seem to be highly regarded by the cognoscenti. I finally got it 4 years ago in one of those '5 albums for peanuts' sets and was surprised at how great it is. I'm also a fan of 'Oh Yeah' ... Mingus at his wildest.

Back to Monk. The Colombia era is not highly regarded in general. This was the era I heard first, largely because they were going cheap in Fopp, and I love all of them. Not that the Riverside, Blue Note etc eras aren't good. They're great too ... but I'm a Monk fan so rather biased! :lol:
