Jazz ?

Just an observation … as an idiom, Jazz does not seem to get much mention among Adirondack enthusiasts. By my count the Miles Davis album– Kind of Blue - is the only Jazz album to make a list.

Pat Metheny and Frank Zappa are on my lists. I'd consider those Jazz, certainly are played on Rochester's jazz station.
I see Joni Mitchell out there too, she definitely has a lot of jazz influence in her music.
Diana Krall's "Live in Paris" came close to making my top ten.

Last night I did the impulsive, impetuous, not-economically-sound thing and went to the Jane's Addiction show. Given my age, and theirs, this was probably the only chance I'll ever realistically get to see them.

My original statements about them are positively validated. Perry Ferrell is truly insane, in all the right ways. He had the audience eating out of his musical hands. If the Pied Piper were ever incarnate, he'd be Perry Ferrell.

Watching and listening to the wild man that is Stephen Perkins was a nothing short of pure joy. His stutter-stepped playing style, dropping in notes in places that you don't expect, and holding back on notes in the places you would expect, brings my ears to very, very happy places. Watching it happen live, man, what a thrill!

Pretty tough to start including jazz due to the sheer immensity of the repertoire.

However, Kind of Blue is an easy one to point out, perhaps the greatest jazz album ever.

Maybe it would be easier to start a new topic on the 10 best jazz musicians ever.

People like Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Stéphane Grappeli, Benny Goodman, Billy Holiday, Ella, Stan Getz and of course, Birdman.

What about Fats Waller???? Not only was he the greatest jazz/blues piano player ever, his lyrics were incredibly clever.

Late to the party here but what a great topic!!! So where to go with it. I was in Haight-Ashbury during the Summer of Love and spent way too many nights at the Filmore. is it worth re-visiting? Maybe, maybe not. Tough choices!!! Here goes:

Greatful Dead: Workingman's Dead
Bob Dylan: Blood on the Tracks
The Beautiful South: Carry on up the Charts or Solid Bronze (for those who haven't heard them they sold more records in the UK than the Beatles)
The Holmes Brothers: Simple Truths
Paul Simon: Graceland
Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon
Stan Rogers: Home in Halifax
Taj Mahal: De Old Folks at Home
Dire Straits: Brothers in Arms
The Beatles: Rubber Soul

Right, wrong or indifferent, I wouldn't give up these albums!!!

I should have added Iron Maiden: The Number of the Beast because this is my 666th post... but... it just doesn't cut the mustard for my top 10.

You maybe can tell, I prefer singer-songwriters that can bare it all...and I like the early, raw stuff, before everyone gets too complacent or turns into a parody of themselves.
SG,
Have you ever listened to the syndicated radio show "Live at the World Café" with David Dye? It has featured many singer songwriters including, Phair, Costello, Orton and Mann.

bluequill,

I have not...yet.
I'm a sucker for those singer/songwriters that have something to say.
Recently discovered how great Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are!!

I should add that I have been a faithful listener of WEQX since it began, and before that I listened to the fantastic WQBK when Lin Brehmer and Ellen McKinnen were driving the local music scene.

Google WXPN and go through the site. This is the station where the World Café is recorded at. Living close to Philly, I am fortunate to be able to enjoy all this station has to offer......especially the free at noon concerts every Friday. A couple of weeks ago I saw James Cotton, this Friday is Johnny Lang.
