I never bother to learn the line up of what I listen to.

ShaDynasty 12-19-2011 07:02 PM

that ahmad jamal album is one of the greatest albums in any genre.

i'd have to say thelonius monk though, probably round midnight or epistrophy. they're in the small category of songs that send shivers down my spine. the only others i can think of that do that are 'georgia on my mind' and 'change gon come'.

Count Basie, Fats Waller, Monk, Hancock and Sun Ra of course

^this man knows

many people sleep on sun ra though

Taskmaster2112 12-20-2011 08:34 AM

Sun Ra, Herbie Hancock, Alice Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, Andrew Hill, Cecil Taylor, Horace Tapscott, Keith Jarrett ("The Koln Concert" is a live improvised solo piano record that's maybe the most beautiful album I've ever heard), Matthew Shipp, Muhal Richard Abrams, Weldon Irvine, Dave Burrell, Harry Whitaker (he worked with Roy Ayers in the 70s, but check out his "Black Renaissance" album).

If I had to pick an absolute favorite out of that list, it would probably be Andrew Hill or Horace Tapscott (although if we were talking bandleaders Sun Ra would win hands down).

^ word, McCoy Tyner is great - one of my favorite jazz albums is "Extensions" by him. Bill Evans need a mention in this thread besides all the great ones already up here but my #1 is probably Keith Jarrett though


Fatal Guillotine 01-09-2012 11:35 AM

what do you guys think of joey defransceo?

WooHa 05-26-2012 01:33 PM

hmm probably Herbie Hancock

Edgar Erebus 05-27-2012 04:23 PM

There's too many to really choose, but lately I've been listening to a lot of Randy Weston.



Or this:
