Must Have of Jazz 1955-1989

Must Have of Jazz

– eine etwas längere Liste an Aufnahmen, die kaum wegzudenken sind, sie schaffen es auch über die Jahre, neue Geschichten zu erzählen, obwohl sie schon so viele erzählt haben.

Lassen wir das mit dem Pathos und schauen es uns nochmal in Ruhe an.

Beileibe keine vollständige Liste. Es kommt fast täglich Neues hinzu. Siehe die Angebote auf den anderen Seiten. Bei all dem den Überblick zu bewahren, nahezu aussichtslos – durchaus typisch für Jazz, Jasm oder Jass. Mal ehrlich; das ist in den anderen Sparten nicht anders – wir vermuten, dass es keine Trennlinien gibt zwischen groovigem oder jazzigem Sound. Lass uns das beibehalten, dieses Spiel mit den Möglichkeiten. Hin und wieder treffen wir uns und geben einen Tipp ab: „Hast du schon gehört?“ Ganz neu, so neu, ich musste mich erst daran gewöhnen. Jetzt aber, wo ich damit durch bin, krieg’ ich nicht genug davon.

Arthur Edward Pepper Jr. (September 1, 1925 – June 15, 1982)[1] was an American alto saxophonist and very occasional tenor saxophonist and clarinetist. Active in West Coast jazz, Pepper came to prominence in Stan Kenton’s big band. He was known for his emotionally charged performances and several stylistic shifts throughout his career, and was described by critic Scott Yanow as having „attained his goal of becoming the world’s great altoist“ at the time of his death. – DER SCHRIFTSTELLER

William James „Count“ Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984)[1] was an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. In 1935, he formed the Count Basie Orchestra, and in 1936 took them to Chicago for a long engagement and their first recording. He led the group for almost 50 years, creating innovations like the use of two „split“ tenor saxophones, emphasizing the rhythm section, riffing with a big band, using arrangers to broaden their sound, and others. Many musicians came to prominence under his direction, including the tenor saxophonists Lester Young and Herschel Evans, the guitarist Freddie Green, trumpeters Buck Clayton and Harry „Sweets“ Edison, plunger trombonist Al Grey, and singers Jimmy Rushing, Helen Humes, Thelma Carpenter, and Joe Williams.

1959 Miles Davis Kind of Blue TIDAL

Miles Dewey Davis III (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991) was an American trumpeter, bandleader, and composer. He is among the most influential and acclaimed figures in the history of jazz and 20th-century music. Davis adopted a variety of musical directions in a five-decade career that kept him at the forefront of many major stylistic developments in jazz.[1] He is a controversial figure, especially in regards to any kind of rights groups.

ornette coleman the shape of jazz to come

Ornette Coleman The Shape of Jazz to Come : Ornette Coleman – The Shape of Jazz To Come – Ein Klassiker, dem selbst Miles Davis die Anerkennung verweigerte, zu willkürlich, zu frei, zu temperamentvoll, zu wenig strukturiert – kann ja jeder kommen. Inzwischen belegt die Aufnahme erste Plätze in den Ranglisten, von Platz 3 der besten Jazz Alben aller Zeiten bei Jazzwize über Platz 9 beim Rolling Stone Sparte Jazz und auch Platz 248 im Rolling Stone aller Platten überhaupt. Seit 2015 nun auch in der National Recording Registry, ein Verzeichnis Us-amerikanischer Tondokumente, die als besonders erhaltenswert erscheinen.

Ein Album das Grenzen sprengt und Regeln über Bord wirft. Ein Wendepunkt in der Entstehung des Avantgarde-Jazz – alles steht auf dem Prüfstein: die traditionellen Konzepte der Harmonie im Jazz, das Piano – es verschwindet kurzerhand, und Akkordwechsel folgen auch keiner Logik mehr – ein aufreizendes Spiel zwischen den Teilnehmern, Soli verlieren ihre Bezugspunkte und werden beliebig vom Partner aufgenommen, Don Cherry im Wechsel mit Charlie Haden in Peace als Beispiel, wenn du das Märchen von der Freiheit im Jazz glauben willst, hier findest du eine Begründung oder die Einleitung dazu

– wer genauer hinhört, wird vor allem aber eins merken: es ist ein mehr als hochwertiges Arrangement der unterschiedlichen Fragmente, die scheinbar willkürlich zusammengefügt werden, aber doch einer inneren Stimme folgen – da ist nichts dem Zufall überlassen – sondern wirkt wie zufällig eingeworfen in ein tatsächlich insgesamt noch swingendes Gerüst, ja, in ein sogar zugängliches Spiel.

Du hörst hier schon Colemans einzigartiges Altquietschen, die wimmernde Katze oder wie willst du diesen typischen Coleman-Sound nennen? Es stoßen freitonale Bewegungen doch immer wieder noch auf einfache Melodien und fließende Strukturen, und doch wird die Tür weit aufgestoßen Richtung Avantgarde des Jazz. Wann Miles Davis dazu geklatscht hat, habe ich nirgends gefunden. Es wird zumindest gemutmaßt, dass einiges von Coleman in Miles Aufnahme On the Corner von 1972 einfloss (bitte: Colemans Aufnahme ist von 1959!)

His pioneering performances often abandoned the chordal and harmony-based structure found in bebop, instead emphasizing a jarring and avant-garde approach to improvisation

He was among the most influential early bebop musicians, which included other greats such as Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and Bud Powell. Gordon’s height was 6 feet 6 inches (198 cm), so he was also known as „Long Tall Dexter“ and „Sophisticated Giant“. His studio and performance career spanned over 40 years.

Herbert Jeffrey Hancock (born April 12, 1940) is an American jazz pianist, keyboardist, bandleader, composer, and occasional actor.[2] Hancock started his career with trumpeter Donald Byrd’s group. He shortly thereafter joined the Miles Davis Quintet, where he helped to redefine the role of a jazz rhythm section and was one of the primary architects of the post-bop sound. In the 1970s, Hancock experimented with jazz fusion, funk, and electro styles, utilizing a wide array of synthesizers and electronics. It was during this period that he released perhaps his best-known and most influential album, Head Hunters – Herbie Hancock (p), Freddie Hubbard (tp), George Coleman (sax), Ron Carter (b), Tony Williams (dr)

1970 Miles Davis Bitches Brew

Bitches Brew is a studio album by American jazz trumpeter, composer, and bandleader Miles Davis. It was recorded from August 19 to 21, 1969, at Columbia’s Studio B in New York City and released on March 30, 1970 by Columbia Records. It marked his continuing experimentation with electric instruments that he had featured on his previous record, the critically acclaimed In a Silent Way (1969). With these instruments, such as the electric piano and guitar, Davis departed from traditional jazz rhythms in favor of loose, rock-influenced arrangements based on improvisation. The final tracks were edited and pieced together by producer Teo Macero.

1971 Mahavishnu Orchestra The Inner Mounting Flame

The Mahavishnu Orchestra were a jazz fusion band formed in New York City in 1971, led by English guitarist John McLaughlin. The group underwent several line-up changes throughout its history across in its two periods of activity, from 1971 to 1976 and from 1984 to 1987. With its first line-up consisting of musicians Billy Cobham, Jan Hammer, Jerry Goodman, and Rick Laird, the band received its initial acclaim for its complex, intense music consisting of a blend of Indian classical music, jazz and psychedelic rock, and its dynamic live performances between 1971 and 1973. Many members of the band have gone on to acclaimed careers of their own in the jazz and jazz fusion genres. – John McLaughlin (g), Rick Laird (b), Billy Cobham (dr), Jan Hammer (keyb), Jerry Goodman (vio)
