What Are You Listening To Right Now? -New thread, new rules. Please read them. - Page 3347

post #50191 of 71586

I'm a fan of 50's-60' classic bop, hard bop, post bop, fusion and cool jazz, But, I figured I should get at least one seminal Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong release.

 

After doing some reading, I decided that the recommended famous 1956 Newport concert (double disc) release that reinvented Ellington's career would be a good starting point. I've always liked swing....

 

Allumusic states, A double CD put out in 1999 presents the entire concert performance, previously unheard material, and a few revelations...

 

Duke Ellington's appearance at the 1956 Newport Jazz Festival has long been famous, and justifiably so. Paul Gonsalves' 27-chorus tenor solo on "Diminuendo in Blue and Crescendo in Blue" practically started a riot at Newport and made headlines around the world. The momentum generated by this concert led to Ellington's comeback and never let up during his 18 remaining years.

 

It sounds great to me-recognize famous tunes (Tea for Two, Take the A Train, Sophisticated Lady, Mood Indigo). This music almost rocks. It swings hard, and has moments of great beauty. I love the pure blues in this kind of music. I'm very happy to add it to my collection. You just can't listen to this music and not feel good.

 

 

Ellington At Newport 1956 [Original recording remastered 1999, Live]

 

Followed by another famous concert-both nearly inciting riots:

 


This one really rocks!

Diggin' it... very well recorded. It makes me think of The Mars Volta but not as schizophrenic. Good stuff.

I'm on the WBC side of that debate, but nobody can deny that they're both great albums.

Found this in a used bin today.  A bit noisy, but really intimate.
