    I thought it would be cool to make a thread to see what jazz albums everyone has gotten. I usually get a lot of jazz albums during the holidays/beginning of the year. Jazz helps me cope with the craziness of winter. :grinthumb

    I recently received:

    Time Changes - Dave Brubeck Quartet
    Mwandishi - Herbie Hancock
    Head Hunters - Herbie Hancock

    ^^I've got a vinyl copy of Headhunters...haven't listened to it for decades.

    I've really fallen off on collecting jazz the last few years.

    Being the music snob that I am, I'm uneasy of the lack of jazz in my collection.

    Saw a video of a gentleman who recommended a short list of albums to start a vinyl jazz collection. I'm starting with five for now,
    and one already arrived:

    TIME CHANGES - Dave Brubeck Quartet

    Got them all as original releases. These are the others I ordered and am awaiting their arrival:

    BILLIE HOLIDAY God Bless The Child

    THE BEST OF COUNT BASIE

    DUKE ELLINGTON Sophisticated

    Charlie Parker - The Very Best Of Bird

    My recent purchases are some items edited by Blue Note Records, perhaps my preferred jazz label:

    Dexter Gordon - Our Man In Paris

    Andrew Hill - Point Of Departure

    I just discovered this wonderful Jazz singer: Helen Merrill.

    Downloaded her first two albums to check her out, and I'm really loving what I'm hearing! :)


    "Don't Explain" Helen Merrill & Clifford Brown (1955)
    Cry to hear folks chatter, and I know you cheat; but
    right and wrong don't matter when you're with me, sweet.
