Jazz for aficionados


Jazz for aficionados

I'm going to review records in my collection, and you'll be able to decide if they're worthy of your collection. These records are what I consider "must haves" for any jazz aficionado, and would be found in their collections. I wont review any record that's not on CD, nor will I review any record if the CD is markedly inferior. Fortunately, I only found 1 case where the CD was markedly inferior to the record.

Our first album is "Moanin" by Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers. We have Lee Morgan , trumpet; Benney Golson, tenor sax; Bobby Timmons, piano; Jymie merrit, bass; Art Blakey, drums.

The title tune "Moanin" is by Bobby Timmons, it conveys the emotion of the title like no other tune I've ever heard, even better than any words could ever convey. This music pictures a person whose down to his last nickel, and all he can do is "moan".

"Along Came Betty" is a tune by Benny Golson, it reminds me of a Betty I once knew. She was gorgeous with a jazzy personality, and she moved smooth and easy, just like this tune. Somebody find me a time machine! Maybe you knew a Betty.

While the rest of the music is just fine, those are my favorite tunes. Why don't you share your, "must have" jazz albums with us.

Enjoy the music.

Nice Joanne Brackeen! Love her playing, and add Dejohnette and Gomez, Great music!

Listening to Robert Glaper,   My Element.  I think I like it, but it’s starting off much to hectic for morning music. I’m going to have to try another album after this.

My new low cost tube preamplifier with three tone controls well done (50 bucks) for my active speakers make my soundfield even better and it was good already...

Then i listened the sound ( not the music) of my system for the last 24 hours...😁

It is really a joy to have a better component which help but nothing beat relaxed musical listening ( not excited sound testing ) ...

I will begin to listen music after my calming of nerves ...
