Random jazz dump

Postby ElectricPuppy » Mon Jul 29, 2013 8:40 pm

I just finished-up a jazz history class, where we listened to lots of seminal jazz tracks starting from early New Orleans jazz all the way up to within the last 10 years or so. I thought I just dump some titles of songs I discovered that I liked along the way. Too lazy to post Youtube links...

Manteca - Chano Pozo w/ Dizzy Gillespie
Salt Peanuts - Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie
Misterioso - Thelonious Monk
Criss Cross - Thelonious Monk
Work Song - Nat and Cannonball Adderly
Giant Steps - John Coltrane
Naima - John Coltrane
So What - Miles Davis
Flamenco Sketches - Miles Davis
Free For All - Art Blakey
Lonely Woman - Ornette Coleman
We Travel the Spaceways - Sun Ra

Apparently I'm partial to 50's and 60's era jazz. :grin:

Jazz songs do have the best titles.
Also, I like that there are no wrong notes in jazz :grin:

I'm sure it's just me, but I've never heard a Sun Ra song I liked. I just don't find it.

Perhaps you have to be from Jupiter like he said he was.

:confuse:

Also, Jazz History for credit? Calicollege are teh foofoo school lolf!

:lol:

But you know I keed. I would have elected exactly that class myself.

Apparently you have to play the *right* wrong notes. :thu:

Sun Ra must be an acquired taste, because I have yet to acquire it too. (Though all I've heard of him has mostly been avant-garde / free jazz type stuff, and I'm less partial to free jazz. Mostly because it *does* often sound like random notes to me. :lol: )

The rest of the artists are pretty good stuff though.

Do you think being from Uranus will cut it? :idea:

I like some Sun Ra... some of it is just awful to me.

Ah yes, Sun Ra, the father of She Ra...




wut

No I don't like Sun Ra. But She Ra is hot.

And, apparently I'm not adding anything useful to this conversation. Just random dumps. Without the jazz.

Correction: Sun Ra is from Saturn, not Jupiter. Please make a note of it. :grin:

However, Jupiter is the second stop. (See "Rocket Number Nine Takeoff for the Planet Venus".)

Also got exposed to some "Bitches Brew", specifically "MIles Runs the Voodoo Down". Meh. Certainly a lot more structured than some of that free jazz shenanigans, but I don't know, I just don't dig it.

Dig?

Cool.

Now Bitches Brew was kinda cool. I haven't listened to it in a while. I think I should dust off the ol' jazz collection.

Without looking, I think I have about one jazz album. I used to read Keyboard Magazine in the Days Before the Innernets, They were always going on about Jimmy Smith this and Jimmy Teh Cat that, so I got one of his records. I remember thinking "What's this crap? How can he call himself a Hammond player when he doesn't even use a Leslie?" I get it better now, but still there's not much 50s and 60s jazz that I fancy.

Well, with patience, you'd know that he kicks the 31H to fast for the final chord of the song... so really, he always uses a leslie.

Yeah, I remember we discursed that before.

This was the album I bought in the early 80s, and the first of his music I ever heard. No wonder, rite? Not only no Leslie, but not even a Hammond! Yuk. He must have taken some kind of endorsement deal.

Nowadays though, I can appreciate some of his older 'hits', but they certainly aren't at the top of my playlist.

If I'm going to listen to Hammond playing through straight speakers, I'll take Ethel the Smith.

:love:

Listened. Liked much.

What do you do while listening to this, though? I feel like I can't just sit and listen, in the normal fashion. I feel like I should wear a filthy sweatshirt and sandals while guzzling a giant Java.

I bet we've had this conversation before as well... I suspect you have never heard Organ Grinder Swing™

What's not to like?

Try it, you might be receptive at this new stage.

I bet we've been here before, but, I once listened to Groove Holmes' Soul Massage™ through my 31H and switched it to fast when I wanted to hear the Leslie kick in :grin:

No I've never been there before. But in college I listened to all my albumns through my 147. It was a great gimmick at parties: made people feel sort of dizzy.
