Jazz: Delicious Hot, Disgusting Cold (Part 2)

Boris Bergman
 
Mercy, Mercy, Mercy
Mercy, Mercy, Mercy
"The Cannonball cooks! The title track of this 'live' album is a soulful tune from keyboardist Joe Zawinul and the rest of the album is quality jazz from a great band."
Live In Greenwich Village: The Complete Impulse Recordings
Live In Greenwich Village: The Complete Impulse Recordings
"A joyful noise, a superb album extended to two discs. Ayler was a passionate saxophonist, taking a cue from Coltrane but also very much his own man. Try 'Our Prayer'."
Time Out
Time Out
"This is one of the best-known jazz albums and with good reason - it's brilliant! Brubeck and his band played with difficult and unusual time signatures while still swinging."
Journey In Satchidananda

"The title track is a classic and Mrs. John Coltrane was a true talent, playing harp and promoting Love and Peace until she left us this year."
Everybody Digs Bill Evans
Everybody Digs Bill Evans
"Everybody's still digging him too. His influence is long and this album is a classic. Listen to 'Peace Piece' and hear some beauty."
Mingus Ah Um
Mingus Ah Um
"Another of my favourite jazz albums. Mingus pays tribute to the Duke, Bird and Pres and raises the bar a few notches for jazz playing from his band."
Blues & Abstract Truth
Blues & Abstract Truth
"This is one of the all-time classic jazz albums as far as I'm concerned. The personnel are ridiculously good and the golden tune 'Stolen Moments' opens the album. Just buy it!"
Sweet Honey Bee

"Underrated pianist Pearson made several great albums. This one is a pleasure from start to finish, check 'Big Bertha' and 'Empathy'."
Art Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section
Art Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section
"Art Pepper turned up unprepared to play with Miles' rhythm section and blew a classic right there and then."
Night Train
Night Train
"Another essential jazz pianist with another essential album. The title track is worth the price alone!"
Power Of Three

"Pianist Petrucciani was unfortunately not with us long enough, but thankfully left a quality legacy behind him. Here he is playing live with Wayne Shorter and Jim Hall. Excellent music."
The Amazing Bud Powell: Vol. 1 (The Rudy Van Gelder Edition)
The Amazing Bud Powell: Vol. 1 (The Rudy Van Gelder Edition)
"Bud Powell is one of the most formidable talents I have heard. The emotion in his music and his technique are extremely high. It's all good! Not to be bought without Volume 2 as well."
Shades of Redd

"A very good album indeed, just listen to opener 'Thespian' if you don't believe me..."
It'S Time                /Imp

"Max Roach is one of the greatest jazz drummers ever and this is a tasty record from him. Check 'Sunday Afternoon' and 'Lonesome Lover'."

"Saxophone Colossus Rollins teams up with Elvin Jones and Jimmy Garrison from 'Trane's band and delivers a kick-ass record."
The Swingin's Mutual

"A pleasure of a record, try 'The Things We Did Last Summer' and be converted!"
Great Sessions

"These three albums are so cheap that there's no point recommending one. They are all tremendous and I don't know where to begin to tell you how good! Try 'Infant Eyes' from SNE and 'Mahjong' from JJ."
Song For My Father
Song For My Father
"Funky hard bop pianist Silver's classic album (there are others). The title track is a killer and so is the rest of the record. Also features Joe Henderson's 'The Kicker'."
Jazz in Silhouette

"Don't be scared by the cover, this is a superb jazz album! Have a listen to 'Enlightenment' and hear a band that are up there with Ellington and Basie."
This Here(Ltd.Release)

"Underrated keyboardist Timmons wrote 'Moanin'' (on this record) and 'This Here' is a classic album! 'Dat Dere' is the Add to Basket icon..."
Never Let Me Go

"Saxophonist Turrentine and then-wife and organist Shirley Scott made several swinging albums together. Here's one, try 'Trouble'."
The Real McCoy

"Tyner is one of the Great piano players and this album is one example why. Opener 'Passion Dance' is superb, as is the rest of this classic."
Universal Syncopations

"Ex-Weather Report bassist meets up with his old buddies and another ECM classic is in the bag. Very listenable!"

"Organist Larry Young has three Giant sidemen and this album is a showcase of talents. Try 'Plaza Del Tores'."

"Lester Young was the 'Pres' of the tenor saxophone, Billie Holiday's foil, and Coleman Hawkin's competition. Two cds here full of lovely jazz!"
