  • John Coltrane - Resolution


    A Love Supreme (1964)

    1. Acknowledgement
    2. Resolution
    3. Pursuance
    4. Psalm

    John Coltrane, tenor saxophone
    McCoy Tyner, piano
    Jimmy Garrison, bass
    Elvin Jones, drums

    Easily one of the most important records ever made, John Coltrane's A Love Supreme was his pinnacle studio outing that at once compiled all of his innovations from his past, spoke of his current deep spirituality, and also gave a glimpse into the next two and a half years (sadly, those would be his last). Recorded at the end of 1964, Trane's classic quartet of Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, and Jimmy Garrison stepped into the studio and created one of the most thought-provoking, concise, and technically pleasing albums of their bountiful relationship (not to mention his best-selling to date). From the undulatory (and classic) bassline at the intro to the last breathy notes, Trane is at the peak of his logical yet emotionally varied soloing while the rest of the group is remarkably in tune with Coltrane's spiritual vibe. Composed of four parts, each has a thematic progression leading to an understanding of spirituality through meditation. From the beginning, Acknowledgement is the awakening of sorts that trails off to the famous chanting of the theme at the end, which yields to the second act, Resolution, an amazingly beautiful piece about the fury of dedication to a new path of understanding. Persuance is a search for that understanding, and Psalm is the enlightenment. Although he is at times aggressive and atonal, this isn't Trane at his most adventurous (pretty much everything recorded from here on out progressively becomes much more free, and live recordings from this period are extremely spirited), but it certainly is his best attempt at the realization of concept — as the spiritual journey is made amazingly clear. A Love Supreme clocks in at just over 30 minutes, but if it had been any longer it could have turned into a laborious listen. As it stands, just enough is conveyed. It is almost impossible to imagine a world without A Love Supreme having been made, and it is equally impossible to imagine any jazz collection without it. []

  • Theme from Exodus - Eddie Harris


    Theme from Exodus by Ernie Gold, played by Eddie Harris from his first solo record Exodus to Jazz. According to Wikipedia, this is the first Jazz record ever certified gold! This record was recorded in 1962 at Bill Putnam's Universal Recording, in Chicago. (Bill later formed UREI from Universal Audio.) It never ceases to amaze me how good these records sound. When I was a young mastering engineer (at Eva-tone, another company formed in Evanston, Ill) my supervisor was Jerry DeClerk; Jerry was an engineer for these sessions and remembered working on this album...

  • Jazz Classics: Dizzy Gillespie - A Night In Tunisia


    hip hop fans should recognize the very beginning of this song as one of the many samples in Gang Starr's 1989 debut single Words I Manifest. this track is simply amazing. everything from Dizzie's amazing trumpet playing to the infectious sound of the vibes that are sprinkled throughout the track. Dizzie Gillespie is famous for being one of the founders of Bebop, modern (along with Charlie Parker) and Cuban influenced Jazz. he died in January of 1993 but left his legacy behind. the pictures on this video show his face looking like that of a blowfish. his face looked like this because he never had any formal instruction on playing the trumpet but learned to play it anyways which damaged his face. you may recognize the style of trumpet he is playing; horn pointing upward. this was his signature and he was the very first to do this. he is also considered by many the first ever beat nick. enjoy.

    Edward Kennedy Duke Ellington (April 29, 1899 -- May 24, 1974) was a USA composer, pianist and bandleader of jazz-orchestras. His career spanned over 50 years, leading his orchestra from 1923 until death.
    Though widely considered to have been a pivotal figure in the history of jazz, Ellington himself embraced the phrase beyond category as a liberating principle, and referred his music to the more general category of American Music, rather than to a musical genre such as jazz. Born in Washington, D.C., he was based in New York City from the mid-1920s onwards, and gained a national profile through his orchestra's appearances at the Cotton Club. In the 1930s they toured in Europe.

  • Charlie Parker: Star Eyes


    Charles Charlie Parker, Jr. (August 29, 1920 -- March 12, 1955), also known as Yardbird and Bird, was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Parker acquired the nickname Yardbird early in his career and the shortened form, Bird, which continued to be used for the rest of his life, inspired the titles of a number of Parker compositions, such as Yardbird Suite, Ornithology, Bird Gets the Worm, and Bird of Paradise. Parker was a highly influential jazz soloist and a leading figure in the development of bebop, a form of jazz characterized by fast tempos, virtuosic technique, and improvisation. Parker introduced revolutionary harmonic ideas, including rapid passing chords, new variants of altered chords, and chord substitutions. His tone ranged from clean and penetrating to sweet and somber. Many Parker recordings demonstrate virtuosic technique and complex melodic lines, sometimes combining jazz with other musical genres, including blues, Latin, and classical. Parker was an icon for the hipster subculture and later the Beat Generation, personifying the jazz musician as an uncompromising artist and intellectual, rather than an entertainer...

  • So What - Miles Davis


    So What was the first track on the studio album Kind Of Blue by American jazz musician Miles Davis, released August 17, 1959 on Columbia Records. The recording sessions for the album took place at Columbia's 30th Street Studio in New York City on March 2 and April 22, 1959. The sessions featured Davis' ensemble sextet, which included pianists Bill Evans and Wynton Kelly, drummer Jimmy Cobb, bassist Paul Chambers, and saxophonists John Coltrane and Julian 'Cannonball' Adderley. After the inclusion of Bill Evans into his sextet, Davis followed up on the modal experimentations of Milestones (1958) and 1958 Miles (1958) by basing the album entirely on modality, in contrast to his earlier work with the hard bop style of jazz. Though precise figures have been disputed, Kind Of Blue has been cited by many music writers not only as Davis' best-selling album, but as the best-selling jazz record of all time. On October 7, 2008, it was certified quadruple platinum in sales by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It has been regarded by many critics as the greatest jazz album of all time and Davis' masterpiece, and it has been ranked at or near the top of several 'best album' lists in disparate genres. The album's influence on music, including jazz, rock and classical music, has led music writers to acknowledge it as one of the most influential albums of all time. In 2002, it was one of fifty recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry. In 2003, the album was ranked number 12 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, Miles Davis was, with his musical groups, at the forefront of several major developments in jazz music including cool jazz, hard bop, free jazz and fusion. Many well-known jazz musicians made their names as members of Davis' ensembles, including John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, John McLaughlin, Julian 'Cannonball' Adderley, Gerry Mulligan, Tony Williams, George Coleman, J.J. Johnson, Keith Jarrett and Kenny Garrett. Miles Davis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. This channel is dedicated to the classic jazz music you've loved for years.

  • Duke Ellington - It dont mean a thing


    Duke Ellington and his orchestra playing this awesome tune in 1943.

    It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing) is a 1931 composition by Duke Ellington with lyrics by Irving Mills, now accepted as a jazz standard. The music was written and arranged by Ellington in August 1931 during intermissions at Chicago's Lincoln Tavern and was first recorded by Ellington and his orchestra for Brunswick Records (Br 6265) on February 2, 1932. Ivie Anderson sang the vocal and trombonist Joe Nanton and alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges played the instrumental solos. The title was based on the oft stated credo of Ellington's former trumpeter Bubber Miley, who was dying of tuberculosis. The song became famous, Ellington wrote, as the expression of a sentiment which prevailed among jazz musicians at the time. Probably the first song to use the phrase swing in the title, it introduced the term into everyday language and presaged the Swing Era by three years. The Ellington band played the song continuously over the years and recorded it numerous times, most often with trumpeter Ray Nance as vocalist.

  • Pine Top Smith, December 1928: PineTops Boogie Woogie


    Clarence Smith, better known as Pinetop Smith or Pine Top Smith (1904 - 1929) performs Pine Top Boogie. From the rare LP you see above, part of a four LP set produced by the jazz critic Leonard Feather and released by Decca in 1957 under the title Encyclopedia of Jazz on Records.

    Буги-вуги (англ. boogie-woogie) — это джазовый стиль, который оказался весьма доступным для широкой слушательской аудитории. Это фортепианный стиль, но инструментальные пьесы в этом стиле порой успешно исполнялись и оркестрами. Сама эта музыка появилась ещё до того, как ей было дано такое необычное название. Исследователи отмечают появление первых рисунков для левой руки, похожих на то, что впоследствии стали называть буги-вуги, ещё в конце XIX века у ранних пианистов рэгтайма. А первая публикация, связанная с применением так называемого «гуляющего баса» (Walkin' Bass), датируется 1909 годом в пьесе «Rag Medley» пианиста по прозвищу Blind Boone. Позднее, в 1913 году, появились записи с подобными рисунками в пьесе Арти Мэтьюза «Ragtime Rag». Пианист Джордж Томас под псевдонимом Клэй Кастер (Clay Custer) выпустил в 1923 году запись пьесы «Rocks». Таким образом, можно видеть, что буги-вуги зародились как ответвление техники рэгтайма, хотя и совершенно отличаются от него техникой исполнения. Сам термин «Boogie Woogie» вошёл в обиход как обозначение танца под аккомпанемент фортепиано в 1928 году, когда вышла запись пьесы «Pine Top's Boogie Woogie» пианиста по имени Pine Top Smith.

    בוגי ווגי הוא סגנון של בלוז המבוסס על תפקידים לפסנתר ומקורו בשיקגו שבארצות הברית. הסגנון היה פופולרי מאד בשנות השלושים ותחילת שנות הארבעים.
    בניגוד לבלוז, שלרוב מטרתו היא להביע רגשות או לספר סיפור, הבוגי ווגי משמש בעיקר כמוזיקת ריקודים, ואפילו מילות שירים בסגנון לרוב יעסקו בהוראות לרוקדים.
    המבנה ההרמוני של הבוגי ווגי לרוב דומה עד מאד לזה של הבלוז. מנוגן בסולם פנטטוני, ומבוסס על הטוניקה הסאבדומיננטה והדומיננטה, כשלעתים משתמשים גם בדומיננטות שניוניות. כמעט תמיד הקצב הוא ארבעה רבעים, וכל סבב של המהלך ההרמוני (בית של שיר) לוקח 12 תיבות, והטמפו מהיר.

    El boogie-woogie es un estilo de blues basado en el piano, generalmente rápido y bailable. Se caracteriza por la ejecución con la mano izquierda de determinadas figuras. Esta figuras que construye la mano izquierda están escritas en corcheas, en compases de 4/4, constituyendo así el denominado eight-to-the-bar. Usualmente se empleaban dos tipos de figuras: la denominada octava galopante (inspiradora de los bajos galopantes o walking bass que caracterizarán después el rock and roll), así como los acordes rápidos conocidos como rocks.

    Boogie-woogie - styl gry fortepianowej zapoczątkowany przez Afroamerykanów, przeważnie w instrumentalnym bluesie, z charakterystycznymi, mocnymi figurami basowymi. Rozwinął się po 1920 roku w Chicago i St. Louis. Styl wywodzi się z instrumentalnego bluesa, przy czym często w pierwszej fazie jego rozwoju zdarzały się formy pograniczne, sąsiadujące ze stylem ragtime oraz stride piano. Utworem przełomowym jest Pinetop's Boogie (1928), ponieważ występuje tu po raz pierwszy nazwa tego stylu. Figury basowe i melodyjne bywają bardzo żywe, powodując u słuchaczy wesoły nastrój. Od niego swoją nazwę wziął swingujący taniec towarzyski pochodzący od tańca boston. Jest to taniec bardzo dynamiczny, o dużym zakresie ruchów. Obecnie tańczony zarówno do stylu muzycznego boogie-woogie, jak i, częściej, do rock and rolla.

  • Stan Getz & Charlie Byrd - Desafinado


    Desafinado, a Portuguese word (usually rendered into English as Out of Tune, or as Off Key), is the title of a bossa nova song composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim with lyrics (in Portuguese) by Newton Mendonça. The English language lyrics were written by Jon Hendricks and Jessie Cavanaugh. Another English lyric, more closely based on the original Portuguese lyric (but not a translation) was written by Gene Lees, and appears on some recordings as well. The version by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd (from the album Jazz Samba) was a major hit in 1962, reaching 15 and 4 on Billboard's pop and easy-listening charts, respectively; their definitive rendering also reached No 11 in the UK, Ella Fitzgerald's version ranked number 38 on the charts.

    Jazz Samba is a bossa nova LP by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd, released on the Verve label on April 20, 1962. Jazz Samba was the first major bossa-nova album on the American jazz scene. It was the real start of the bossa-nova excitement in America, which peaked in the mid-1960s. Though Stan Getz was the featured star of the album, it was very strongly inspired and designed by the guitarist Charlie Byrd. They were joined by two bassists (Keter Betts and Charlie's brother, Gene (Joe) Byrd), and two drummers (Buddy Deppenschmidt and Bill Reichenbach) for the recording at All Souls Church, Unitarian in Washington, D.C. on February 13, 1962, and it was released on April 20, that year as Verve LP V6-8432.

    Although it is often described as music by Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, only two of the seven tracks on the album are Jobim compositions (Desafinado [Slightly Out of Tune] and Samba de Uma Nota Só [One Note Samba]), the rest being by other Brazilian composers and by Charlie Byrd. Getz won the Grammy for Best Jazz Performance of 1963 for the track Desafinado, and went on to make many other bossa-nova recordings, most notably with João Gilberto and Astrud Gilberto, and most famously The Girl From Ipanema.

    When I try to sing you say I'm off key
    Why can't you see how much this hurts me
    With your perfect beauty and your perfect pitch
    You're a perfect terror
    When I come around must you always put me down

    If you say my singing is off key my love
    You will hurt my feelings don't you see my love
    I wish I had an ear like yours
    A voice that would behave
    But all I have is feelings and a voice gone deaf

    You insist my music goes against the rules
    But rules were never meant for lovesick fools
    I wrote this little song for you but you don't care
    Its a crooked song oh but all my love is there

    The thing that you would see if you would play your part
    Is even if I'm out of tune I have a gentle heart
    I took your picture with my trusty rollaflex
    And now all I have developed is a complex

    Possibly in vain I hope you weaken oh my love
    And forget these rigid rules that undermine my dream of
    A life of love and music with someone who'll understand
    That even though I may be out of tune
    When I attempt to say how much I love you
    All that matters is the message that I bring
    Which is my dear one I love you
