Merry Christmas, /mu/.

Now, I've noticed a fair bit of recent jazz missing from the conversation. Sure, we talk about old jazz (milescoltranethelistgoeson), but I never see jazz making it into anybody's end of year album list. I'm hoping that maybe a couple of these records might find their way in yours.

I'm not just going to dump everything, because I don't want the truly good stuff to go missing. So I've curated my top 20 jazz albums of the year and uploaded them to zippy. At the end, I'll give a list of everything that didn't make my top 20, and will upload anything requested (provided the thread stays alive long enough to do so).

Nujabes is a great springboard. Maybe start with some of the more electronic selections in here (7, 15, as well as 18 for obvious reasons)

Essentials: Louis Armstrong and everyone who worked with him, Dizzy Gillespie and everyone who worked with him, and Miles Davis and everyone who worked with him. Guitar players you'll find along the way, but my personal favourites: John McLaughlin, Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell. There are a bunch of guitar guys in this thread too.

Last one, then I'll post my leftovers list.

I encourage you to do so. Obviously they haven't released albums in 2014 so they didn't make it into my list.

I could do a pre-1940s top 20 thread in January if you like.

I'll do my best. I don't actually have any in my library I just realised. But I do still have all my lecture notes/readings from when I took a university course in early jazz history, so unless someone more knowledgable wants to step up, I'll dl as much as I can, sort the wheat from the chaff, and get something up in a few weeks.

I'm shamefully not into jazz yet I just know the timeline because of my old man. I only seem to see middle period and contemporary jazz here that's why I asked. But I don't follow the threads generally.

A bump for this thread, OP is nice.

Does anyone have anything that sounds kinda like this or something that has a similar feel?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3KewRJzo74
Obviously there's other stuff by Angelo Baldalamenti, but as a score composer his work is vary inconsistent in sound and only a certain fraction of his work has this kind of feeling.
I've heard echos of this sound in certain ECM stuff, but it's usually not so atmospheric.

it's too bad that most of /mu/ dismiss grant ..
i think that in itself is pretty indicative of the low level of understanding that people here have of this music.
there's a reason why so many people chose mr green to be on their records.
