Sure enough, jazz and hip-hop have both stood the test of time, and as is also nearly inevitable for two genres that have been around more than 20 years, commingled in extraordinary ways.
There are acoustic bass-driven grooves, multiple shout-outs to jazz and its pioneers, and even a guest appearance by Ron Carter, a legendary double bassist who played with everyone from Miles Davis to Gil Scott-Heron. One of the first West Coast acts to emerge with a jazzy sound, the Pharcyde, were a refreshingly light-hearted counterpoint to South Central L. Warm samples of Weather Report, Herbie Mann, John Coltrane, and other jazz greats contribute as much to this freewheeling atmosphere as the schoolyard lyrics do, making for a seemingly bottomless supply of good vibes.
Just so you know — jazz does not need saving as mention in the Kamasi Washington review. It is a genre that will never fade away. Check out the essential jazz albums to own on vinyl on the Discogs […].
A great way to discover jazz is by way of a compilation. Thanks for this list. Have been a big fan of Larry Carlton, Lee Rittenour and others in that style, but only recently have ventured into the more traditional horn led jazz.
Big fan of vinyl and fought the switch to CDs, so very glad vinyl has made a strong recovery. But somehow the horns on Birth Of The Cool sound really-extra dated, because it was recorded in the late 40s and only released in the 50s. Saxophone Colossus would be top of my list.
Top of any list I could possibly shoehorn it into but not for Blue 7 as it turns out. Rollins played for years with Max Roach, and their chemistry was never more visceral than on Strode Rode. Tommy Jarvis Jacket Guide to vinyl is very useful and helpful for the new beginners in this field. This is kinda the jazz version of that. Another Voyage , however, is a Lewis album which drips with nothing but his sweetest juice. Maurice White. Higgins did loads of extraordinary work as a composer, arranger and sideman, with too many collaborators to even start listing, but if he was involved, you can bet one eye was always on the groove.
This fact has served to also make it among his most collectable in recent years, but lucky for those of us on a budget, the good people at the Real Gone label have freshly reissued the album on vinyl and CD. Still, he was a hard bopper first and foremost, and on this, his first LP for Atlantic, Hubbard lays it on heavy. Short and sweet, this is Hubbard at his most accessible, and almost certainly his most danceable.
