has there ever been a label as based as Blue Note?
also, search your fav labels and post charts using topsters:
"the house that Trane built"!
I haven't gone through it so thoroughly though - but almost all the big labels seem like they've released so much music you could just listen to it for years before reaching the end of it all. I'm still undecided about whether this is a good thing or not...
by far Prestige made my fav Monk recordings - even better than the Blue Note ones: Monk Trio, Monk & Rollins - incredible
it means you eventually have to choose to follow what you like, I guess? everything is just too much
>mfw this image has literally some of my favourite records
so I went through Impulse!, picking everything I recognized. all I can say:
couldn't resist making a Prestige chart - Miles, Coltrane, Monk, Sonny Rollins...
if it wasn't for the Amazing Bud Powell series on Blue Note, I'd probably rate Prestige above Blue Note!
I recommend recognizing more - Impulse! was a fantastic label, that's just scratching the surface
I know that one! am I wrong in thinking it's got some of the best Ellingtonian voicings Duke didn't do himself?
never heard of it before- German jazz with Peter Brötzmann as one of the founders? I'll definitely check it out
here's my favorite releases from Alligator Records
Hound Dog Taylor and The Houserockers are definitely underrated!
just made this for the occasion :) was there ever a greater U.S. indie label than SST?
what I'd really love to see is a Rough Trade chart. I mean, I got their great post-punk collection, but I still don't really have a feel for their catalog...
Some's gotta mention based Slap A Ham tbhfam
I don't know a lot of jazz, but here's my Riverside chart
