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).

I was the same the past few years, so this year I was determined to get jazz heavily in the balance. Appreciate the kind words!

I didn't know of the pastebin before now (I've barely been on /mu/ all year because it's banned where I live on campus, so only come on when I'm back for the holidays). Cheers for linking.

What kind of music do you normally enjoy? If you can tell me that, I might be able to point you towards jazz that captures a similar expression.

How do I even into jazz?

Where do I start if I want the essentials and some guitar players thrown in as well?
you start with Kind of Blue, Moanin, and Time Out.

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)

19. Ben Sidran - Blue Camus

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.

20. Ginger Baker - Why?
>post-bop, highly percussive

Can anyone post a working link to A Charlie Brown Christmas by Vince Guaraldi Trio? checked the archive and there arn't any that work
It might be too abrasive for people not familiar with that kind of music
>old jazz

I have to go to bed soon, but if there a couple people are particularly interested in and can't find elsewhere, I'd be happy to upload.
Old compared to 2014, not compared to Jelly Roll and Bix.
Do the latter make it into the /mu/ conversation?
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 could do a pre-1940s top 20 thread in January if you like.
Not him, but I woiuld love it, Especially if the focus is on dixieland.
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?
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.
My favorite jazz record is idle moments by grant green. If you love jazz guitar you will love that record.
Where's the criss cross jazz?
Hey, OP- You're a good guy
Indie Jazz band Karate
Some pretty damn good shit, here's a link to their discog, A Bed In The Ocean is my fav


requesting some recent years free jazz albums
Have you listened to John Zorn's Masada? If not, I'll try and upload some later.
Cool thrread I miss out on current jazz releases pretty often
Earl Sweatshirt
nice dubs and hey, great record! one of my favorites of all time.
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.

happy holidays anon!
