Thanks for visiting our listings and especially for bidding!!! Backed up by bass and drums only, the Saxophone Colossus faces the challenge of filling the harmonic duties normally carried out by the piano.
The unusual setting serves the band surprisingly well, giving all three instruments enough space to add color, rhythmic and harmonic complexity. Rollins stretches his melodic lines in all directions, detouring from the standard bop melodies into polytonal territories. This record captures some of the most intense performances ever recorded by Sonny Rollins, and some of his most adventurous too. Countless historic combos fall short in comparison when it comes to the impact each one of these musicians had on their own instrument and the genre as a whole.
Jazz at Massey Hall is a fun and enlightening listen that captures some of the greatest musicians to ever play in the bebop subgenre embodying everything the style is about. The music of Charles Mingus inhabits a narrow line between seemingly opposite worlds.
The clapping, shouting and collective improvisations throughout Mingus at Antibes show ties to African music, while the arrangements and horn harmonies borrow from European impressionist composers. The structures dictated by Mingus loosen up and adapt to fit the drive and emotion of the soloist in a particular moment. A particularly inspired Eric Dolphy on alto and bass clarinet navigates between the traditional and the Free jazz worlds, adding to the visceral nature of this album.
Jazz orchestras had been replaced by small combos at the forefront of the genre, but at the Newport Jazz Festival the Duke showed he still had it in him, revamping his career in the process. Swinging rhythms and danceable melodies are played with beautiful and lush arrangements, sometimes in unison, others in counterpoint.
This may be because this unrehearsed recording session from marks a great turning point in jazz history as well as showcasing the top form of some legendary musicians. Miles showed up to the Columbia recording studio with some rough melodies and chords jotted down on paper and the band proceeded to track each song in one or two takes.
That's how Miles liked to do it, he made sure the music was spontaneous and in the moment. This album also marked a departure from the traditional bebop style with songs that are simple melodies over simple chord progressions leaving room for the deep improvisational exploration.
What a treat it is to listen to time and time again. Instead of showcasing the complex and dense harmonic language in a post-bop style developed with Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk, Coltrane blows over simpler chords freely with a raw spiritual passion. The four songs on this album convey emotions of anger, joy, sadness, ecstasy, tragedy and triumph. Many types of artists, such as writers or painters, use this album to inspire energy and passion from within themselves for their own personal art.
This album also marked a turning point in Coltrane's playing as he ventured into performing music from it's deepest, most spiritual roots rather from a his previous technical perspective. Time Out - Dave Brubeck Dave Brubeck created a masterpiece which became the first instrumental jazz album to sell over a million copies.
This album had a strong influence from Eastern European culture as Brubeck used many of their rhythms and time signatures. The complex rhythms he uses sound unique yet very natural and easy to listen to, probably the reason for it's success.Check out There'll Be Some Change Made (Recorded ) by Chicago Rhythm Kings on Amazon Music.
