From the monthly archives: "November 2016"


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 the 50’s. Its so clearly evident to me, time after time, when searching for recordings (albums and songs) through discographies. They were all associated with each other and in so many helpful ways. One very important attribute was the quality behind the improvising and the endless inventiveness. It seems that by supporting each other so strongly the competitive level rose but in a positive manner which in turn, increased their creative level. This 1956 album, “Informal Jazz” is a perfect example, get it and treasure it! Learn more about the Prestige Records label, great stuff to know!
