WEFOUNDThe Definitive Jazz Collection Songbook: Alto Sax


The second of three Impulse sampler LPs has selections from nine different sessions, performances that at the time did not appear on any other albums (although some of the songs have since been reissued as "bonus cuts" on CDs, reunited with the other music from the original dates). On this volume there are numbers from Ray Charles , Shirley Scott , Lionel Hampton , Oliver Nelson , J.J. Johnson , McCoy Tyner , Manny Albam , Tommy Flanagan and John Coltrane (a memorable version of "Dear Old Stockholm").

For every hep cat that loves to slip into a jazz trance there’s someone clasping their hands over their ears and screaming “switch that shit OFF!”

The Original Dixieland Jazz Band was the first jazz ensemble to record and make nationally distributed records. With a mix of European harmonies and rhythms from Africa, jazz entered national US consciousness via this (mostly) white band playing African-American music. This compilation features the widely regarded first jazz single “Livery Stable Blues,” and is currently the best collection of their early period (1917-1923) and “re-union” sessions in 1936.

A Love Supreme is one of the most important records ever made. Perhaps Trane’s pinnacle studio recording, it’s at once demanding, concise, technically perfect and a best seller. With the classic quartet of Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, and Jimmy Garrison this three part album should feature in every music fan’s collection.
