I assume you already have two essential Miles albums, Kind of Blue and Milestones?

In reply to an earlier post on May 1, 2010 6:26:50 AM PDT
I would have included the Gil Evans collaborations, especially Porgy & Bess, and Birth of the Cool as essential as well.

Hi Susan,
Thank you. I have the Birth (not all sessions, but the album), Porgy, and Ahead.

I just managed to pick up a handful of Threadgill's old Air recordings and a few Archie Shepps that I didn't have. I also have some interesting stuff "on order" from Susan.

Hi Daniel,
What albums by Miles Davis you think should be in every Jazz fan collection. I know its a bit tough, cause Miles passed through different types of jazz. Or perhaps you might want to tell me about your favorite Miles' albums. I am trying to collect his best stuff.

thank you.

Ahmad

Ahmad,

If you check the beginning of the Desert Island Album thread, you will find several excellent Miles Davis choices by Dan, Thomas Sorenson, Bryce Jerlow and myself. I don't think you can go wrong with any of those, although they do seem to concentrate on his earlier periods. For later stuff, you will have to check some other discussions on this forum.

Ahmad, I know from your posts in the classical music forum that you like electronic music, so I figure you might like Miles Davis' "DOO-BOP" from 1992 - it's sort of trip-hop with Miles' trumpet. Several versions available, here is one of them:
Doo-Bop

Not exactly "On order", but a friend of mine gave me as a birthday present a very generous gift card for my favorite record store: Canterbury Records in Pasadena, California. I went there the other day to spend it and came home with a fistful of goodies:

Django Festival, Volume 5 on the Norwegian Hot Club label (a great series)
Alkohol by Goran Bregovic and his Wedding and Funeral Band (check these guys out they're phenomenal, I saw them in 2007 at the Django Festival in Samois)
Gipsy Project by Bireli Lagrene
After You're Gone - a new collection of tracks by the Les Paul Trio, recorded in January and February 1945
and a very interesting 2-Cd set of Swedish swing music from 1937-1939

Hi All:
I love this community. Here are my orders this evening...

1. Ray Charles - Soul + Genius = Jazz (I just realized that it was reissued and expended)
Live recordings:
2. Sonny Rollins - Night at the Village Vanguard
3. Wes Montgomery/Wynton Kelly - Smokin' at the Half Note
4. Erroll Garner - Concert by the Sea

Any suggestions for other live recording favorites?

Thank you,

David

Hi David
here's one recommendation
Ella in Rome: The Birthday Concert or Mack the Knife: The Complete Ella in Berlin - not both since they are quite similar
Another, a bit more (financially) ambitious suggestion:
The Complete Jazz At The Philharmonic On Verve: 1944-1949 (I bought a far cheaper version, also from Verve, but I don't think it's on sale on amazon)
Also:
Jazz Icons: Charles Mingus Live in '64 and Cornell 1964
As far the videos are concerned:
Jazz on a Summer's Day/A Summer's Day With Bert Stern,

Posted on May 3, 2010 11:18:02 PM PDT
Nikica Gilic says:
I also liked very much a mix of jazz and african "ethno"
Congo Square...
Among my "live" favorites are also
Jazz Icons: Chet Baker Live in '64 and '79
and
A Night at Birdland, Vol. 1 and Vol 2 as well.

Hi David,
I am not sure about the type of live jazz you like most, but by looking at your wonderful selection, I would like to recommend:

1- Jim Hall: Live (Dig) (this one is a must)

2- Chick Corea: Live in Montreux, hardbop

3- Bill evan/Eddie Gomez: Montreaux, Vol. 3, cool jazz

4-Kenny Barron/Charlie Haden: Night and the City, my favorite LIVE cool jazz; pianist Barron's lengthly improvisations are so deep and focused.

5- Keith Jarrett: Solo Concerts: Bremen & Lausanne, solo piano concerts are rare in the jazz world, and Keith Jarrett is probably the first one that comes to mind. I know many people will say the Cologne Concert is the best place to start. I say now, as I own the following Jarrett's live solo piano concerts: Cologne, La Scala, Paris, Vienna, Bremen/Loussane, and Concert (recorded somewhere in Austria), and I am sure the the Bremen/Loussane Concerts are the most accessible, being a mix of jazz, gospel, baroque....etc

David,
Its your turn now to let us now about your favorite jazz records. I am looking to buy a couple more jazz records, and perhaps you can help.

Cheers!

Ahmad

For Miles - A Tribute to Jack Johnson .

Posted on May 4, 2010 6:46:18 AM PDT
Hello Music lovers. there is only one thing better than a live jazz recording,and that is a live performance in person. I was treated to such a performance this past weekend. Newport R.I.I was invited to a birthday party on sat.on fri.we went to a converted mansion called CHANLER. Appearing were MIKE RENZi and Marlene Ver plank. Mr Renzi ank my buddy are friends and we sat up front on easy chairs and listened our ears off drank had some apps.and Chatted with the musicians between sets and the could not have been more cordial.it was an evening I wo`nt forget

Thank you everyone, I'm intrigued by the suggestions. I was listening to Monk: Live at the It Club over the weekend. Monk's intro before the cymbal crash, and later solo, on I'm Getting Sentimental Over You are pure brilliance. I really like the sound of these discs, just the right amount of ambient sound to make you feel "as though you are there" without being disruptive. All live performances should be recorded so well.

I already have most of the recordings that have been listed here (not bragging... it's just that I've bought and collected jazz for a long, long time). If you're into Miles, you should get the Columbia box sets, if they're still available.

I haven't ordered anything recently... the last CD I got was Miroslav Vitous' Remembering Weather Report. But I am eager to get the new Paul Motian CD, and the forthcoming one from Keith Jarrett and Charlie Haden.

Hi James,
Thanks for the recommendation about Miles. I already have his essential albums (I know the word "essential" can bring a long arguments). And I ordered the one above. Could you remind me about the Columbia sessions? album names? because perhaps I have some of them.

Ahmad says:
I placed another order of Classical and two Jazz albums yesterday. I'll only mention the Jazz stuff. Hopefully, this was my last order for this year >>> "yeah, right!"

1- Magnificent Thad Jones
2- Toots Thielemans: Chez Toots

Jimmy Smith - Electrifyin

Pretty much the same tracks as the Mosaic 1957 box set, but at a much better price.
