Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson and the 1963 Jazz Movement

1963 was a significant year for both Herbie Hancock and Joe Henderson, as they accepted the responsibility of leading Jazz into a new decade. Their main vehicle came by way of two significant Jazz recordings that were designed to carefully bridge and blend the Hard Bop era with the desires of an up and coming…

Joe Henderson and “The State of the Tenor”

Who would have thought that Joe Henderson would produce one of his best recordings in 1985? There’s nothing “shocking” for me or any other knowledgeable Joe Henderson fan to imagine that he was so called, “Over the Hill.” The only concern would rest on how “Sharp” he would be at the age of 48, would…

Lee Morgan INDEED!!

Yes indeed! This is very early LEE Morgan and a perfect example of how talented he was and where how bright his future would be in the world of Jazz. Yes indeed, this album was recorded in 1956 and that made Lee Morgan only 18 years old. It was his official FIRST recording as a…

Vintage Freddie Hubbard and the “Keystone Bop”

Here’s a great vintage Freddie Hubbard recording that is not praised enough because of the year it was made. 1981 wasn’t a very “popular” year for Jazz and for three legendary Jazz musicians that specifically helped modernize Jazz 20 years prior, in the mid 60’s. This LIVE recording was an excellent example of how special…

Podcast to “Promote” and “Branch Out”

As a promotional tool, I have created a podcast page on iTunes for the sole purpose of promoting Jazz Con Class Radio for those who are not aware of the station. I’m always trying to find a new path that would branch out the tree of Jazz music. This is not only important for this…

Lee Morgan’s “City Lights”

This is a fantastic album and one of “Seven” recordings that Lee Morgan released as a leader in a two years span 1956 and 1957, check his discography here. City Lights was another example of how the Jazz musicians of those times helped the up and coming stars. Lee Morgan at age 19 here, held…

Art Blakey and his Jazz Messengers are LIVE at Birdland’s, Ugetsu!

This is a very little spoken about album of Art Blakey which, in my mind, ranks right up there near the very top and to sort of create some controversy, could possibly be his best “Live” set ever recorded. This statement I’m making can be easily compared to piloting kamikaze plane because all of Art…

The legendary Ike Quebec and the “Heavy Soul” recording

Ike Quebec had an up and down career, from a promising tenor saxophone player with high demand in the 40’s to a bad drug problem throughout the 50’s. Fortunately, he was able to break away from this killer addiction and make a brief comeback that started in 1959. In that year he recorded a compilation…

Its just “Informal Jazz” that’s all?

Straight forward Hard Bop Jazz, could be the meaning behind the informality in the title of the album. Or maybe it could be the list of legendary individualists who makeup this sextet, WOW! Its a great testament to the unselfish gratitude these specific Jazz artists had towards each other during this golden Jazz age of…

A Great Monk Recording “Live at the It Club”

This is a marvelous “Live” recording among many from Thelonious Monk. This gem consists of two recording dates, recorded on October 31, and November 1, 1964. This album was issued twice, the first was “18 years” after, in 1982 and was then reissued as a double CD in 1998 with extra tracks (Complete Version.) The…

Sun Ra’s “Jazz by Sun Ra” is undeniably a Classic Jazz Recording!

What can I say about Sun Ra and his inventive arrangements? Absolutely BRILLIANT! As weird as Sun Ra has been personally portrayed, his musical genius is unmatched. There are only a few Jazz cats that can produce these incredible works of art! This 1956 recording was renamed to “Sun Song” and the album cover was…

The “Lou Takes Off” album and a little about Lou Donaldson

Lou Donaldson was a big force in the “Hard Bop” movement which evolved directly from Bebop in the very early 50’s. He was very much established as a premier alto saxophone player by 1957 and when this album was recorded. He apparently was very up-to-date with the surprise launch of of the historic Russian Sputnik…
