18. Volume 1 - How To Play Jazz & Improvise
Sold as "Paperback (Book/2CDs)"
Tough to go wrong with Kind of Blue.
Perhaps someone who has already ordered Giant Steps from getimportCDs could enlighten us to exactly which pressing this is?
The listing details are kind of a mess, but the UPC implies that this is for the 2014 UK Atlantic Pressing, which has great reviews. CamelCamelCamel says that it beats the historic Amazon listing by about $1.50.
This at least appears to be a legitimate Atlantic, Rhino or Warner release (and not one of those grey market Euro pressings)...
Found this discussion that is worth checking out:https://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/quality-john-coltrane-vinyl-reissues-is-it-as-confusing-as-it-seems.666248/
Looks like there may be a more highly regarded version, also from Rhino: https://www.amazon.com/GIANT-STEPS-DELUXE-Vinyl-COLTRANE/dp/B0000DJYO0/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&ref_=yo_ii_img
not to bust your chops but
here's a new, sealed, M/M for about 30$ from amazon
and here's a bunch of Mint copies for like 30ish, and some MOFI versions for like 40-50
Not trying to rain on your parade, but your prices seem a bit steep on some of the records. For example:
Fight Club OST for $55... You can still get these brand new straight from Mondo for $35
Also the NES v2 can still be bought from Moonshake for $25... 65 is insane.
and Bitches Brew is currently at $33 new....
edit: I knew this guy was marked on my RES for a reason... He's been quoted by saying this...
> I always price high
He's been deleting his post history so that people who try to do their homework before buying from him wont see the numerous amounts of downvoted posts he's made with over priced records. I'm not saying not to buy from this guy or anything, but that's just sketchy already.
Young Frankenstein is one of the GOAT movies and if you think differently you probably enjoy Tim McCarver's album unironically.
Its a Wax time release. Stay away.
Legit OJC version on amazon for only a dollar more.
Wax Time label is crap. This is a European label that reissues old classics where copyright protections expire after 50 years. They exploit the artist and the worse offense is that they are simply pressing from CD sources and not the original analog tapes from Verve. Sounds low quality. Step up to this Verve pressing instead for $17.86. https://www.amazon.com/Ella-Louis-LP-Fitzgerald-Armstrong/dp/B00F5DXK86/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=ella+and+louis&qid=1557687400&s=music&sr=1-2
For the Tim McCarver hater in your life.
I think the Spain blue note release is a CD not vinyl.. Though Amazon also listed it for $13. 53
Birth Of The Cool [LP] https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ISVRIFW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_mw1xCbKSMV9WH

if you're already into duke, thelonious monk plays duke ellington might work for you. that being said...
i can't think of any bad monk albums, but he's at his best when he gets to stretch out on longer solos, building rhythm patterns, echoing and deconstructing melodies, etc. he often re-worked the same compositions at different points in his career, so for a lot of tunes there's not a canonical this-is-the-official-version "best" recording. you might try this imho stellar recently-discovered live recording at carnegie hall with john coltrane.
Im gonna leave this here.... Tim McCarver Sings Selections from The Great American Songbook. Read the reviews. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002OJGGH6
The Smithsonian Anthology is a nice historical survey.
I really enjoy me some Miles Davis, I like to drive by his "Spanish Key".
This is a pretty good overview of the genre. Jazz is a very diverse genre and this will give you a taste of everything throughout its history.
edit: this has little to none avant garde/free jazz, though that might make it easier to digest for new listeners.
I was in the same position as you a couple of months ago. I went through this book https://www.amazon.com/Mitchell-Trumpet-Book-1-DVD/dp/1585607193/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1511531038&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=mitchell+on+trumpet. I found it really good as it starts from the very beginning and it took me time to reacquire the fundamentals. I then went on to Arbans and used this book as a guide https://bolvinmusic.com/product/arban-manual/. I'm also trying to learn jazz properly and have been using this as a guide https://www.trumpetherald.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=32146 which requires this book to start https://www.amazon.com/Vol-Play-Jazz-Improvise-Book/dp/B0002J6I8M. Any other questions let me know.
Love this guy- never heard of him until I picked up his DVD on a whim one day. Fucking BLOWN away by how good he is.
This might be a good time to try to find something you like in one of the classic greats like Miles Davis' Kind of Blue.
If you're open to classical music I recommend this rockin' album of music by Samuel Barber
Best of luck, friend.
i always end up back on Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall.
MLB Network was playing songs from Tim McCarver's album...
Since we're spending time talking about Tim, I'd like to once again remind you all about this 100% genuine, for real, non-ironic album he made where he "Sings Selections of the Great American Songbook."
Read the reviews.
Europe grey market stuff is basically at best a cd pressed on a record. At worst it’s a cd pressed on vinyl with crap vinyl quality.
You’re much better off for Giant Steps either getting the 2017 mono which is a quiet flawless pressing or the Kevin grey mastered stereo , both on rhino, both fantastic sound.

While it appears that lorises might make very good pets as they seem harmless and cute by many people, they are wild animals and not suitable to be kept as recreational livestock. The fact remains that they are only harmless once their teeth have been removed as they are capable of inflicting a toxic bite.
How about the Smithsonian Jazz Anthology? Pricey but informative and lots of music.
Here's some more that are about $13.50ea shipped. Some may be for Amazon Fr Prime Members only.
Aerosmith - Permanent Vacation
Cream - Disraeli Gears
Bob Dylan - Times They are-a Changin
Kings of Leon - Aha Shake Heartbreak
John Mayall w Clapton - Bluesbreakers
Lorde - Pure Heroine
Nina Simone - My Baby Just Cares
Nine Simone - Pastel Blues
Patti Smith - Easter
Patti Smith - Horses
Awesome! Idle Moments is my favorite record of all time. Not just regarding jazz, but all time - in the history of music. Joe Henderson's solo during the title track is perfection. Read the liner notes when you get a chance, there's a great story in there about the actual recording session.
First runs on ebay are go for more than $300 at the VG+ level . Don't be discouraged though, the 1970's reissues play great and can still be had for a more affordable price, so definitely grab one if you can! Also if you're anxious for a play copy on vinyl, represses can be had on Amazon for like $10-15. I bought a few of these for gifts and they play just fine.
Tim mccarver sings in Vegas
For what it's worth, [this] (http://www.amazon.com/Kind-Blue-Miles-Davis/dp/B000002ADT/) recording claims in the liner notes to have corrected various errors in the earlier re-issues.
Half way through this video there is some great help on fills.
As for beats there are too many to mention but I thoroughly recommend Mr. Greb's dvd, sacks of knowledge on how to go about creating, implementing and controlling all the different patterns oot there.
I practice my left foot exactly as I practice the right, try playing a pattern with your right foot for a bar then playing the same pattern on the left for a bar, alternating hands between hats and ride. And yes, always start slowly and gradually get faster. This will help build the dexterity in your left foot and make it not feel like there is a brick tied to it! Happy drumming my friend :)

This review was the most helpful.
As other people are saying, listening a lot is obviously really important. But here is a fantastic tool to help you in a slightly more concrete way:
This was the book of choice by my jazz professor, who I studied improv with. The most important part about the book is in the middle, where there are a series of increasingly complex chord progressions. It starts with 12 bar blues, and evolves into full charts. And it comes with a CD, which has drums and bass playing those changes. To me, this was the perfect way to practice improvising. Just spend an hour a day playing along with the changes, and you get rapidly better.
The rest of the book is full of common improv vocabulary, with exercises, scales, licks, etc. Study these a bit to get some of the important vocabulary under your belt. But the most important thing is just to listen to solos you like, use them as inspiration, and then practice playing to the changes. Good luck.
Hehe, I'm just busting your balls, dude. I actually didn't start with the early classics either. Made my way from 70s prog rock to fusion jazz to contemporary jazz and then made my way back.
Anyway, look into the concert at the Carnegie Hall Monk did with Coltrane. That should be a good intro. Underground is also a great album.
Duke Ellington - Three Suites. Not strictly Christmas, but it's got a great jazz take on the Nutcracker Suite to start off with. Plus, the rest is Duke Ellington, which is great.
If you don't have much of a jazz collection yet, this is a GREAT place to start. The enclosed liner notes are wonderful and the compilation represents a fairly diverse range of the genre:
I know it is pushing $100, but this is probably the best place to start if you are starting from scratch.
Additionally, this question (and similar permutations) has been asked on this (and other) sub-reddits so you might get some good inspiration from a search.
That's pretty good, and brings back some memories ... but the first time you play the samples here is going to be pretty high up on the Mclaughometer:

If you seriously want to.
This is the original recording remastered. Does that mean it's not by Teo Macero?
Grant Green - Idle Moments. The opening track is simply amazing.

Miles Davis! I've always loved Jazz, it always gets me in a better mood. "Music is always a commentary on society."
There’s also this 5 cd set Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology that takes you through the history of jazz. All the tracks are classics.
I've built up a nice little jazz collection over the past few years and I really love slow, introspective piano stuff. Andrew Hill's Hommage is a great solo album, as is Mingus Plays Piano. Dave Brubeck's Jazz Impressions of Japan has a nice balance of fast/slow jazz and Thelonius by Himself is contemplative and cool. For a something a little different try Walt Dickerson's Impressions of a Patch of Blue or Sun Ra's The Night of the Purple Moon. Fun, funky stuff.
Something faster paced? Bitches Brew by Miles Davis or The Cry by Prince Lasha are two of my best purchases.
FYI, the Ellington album is called Three Suites.
I can't narrow down the songs and movies to 5 but I think I can take a stab at the albums. The links go to Amazon. In no particular order...
I could survive on a desert island with these 5 albums and never want for music. I might want a power supply though.
shades of blue is under $15 shipped on amazon right now, fyi
Price history - has only been lower than this for a day or two last year
Dave Brubeck - Time Out

This audio CD is notable for many reasons:
Edit: it's also nice for getting your groove on with the ladies.
