Don't limit yourselves!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
It often saddens me when one of my brothers younger friends cringes at the idea of jazz or anything pre-1990.

It delights me when I am able to play them some of this "old crap" and they suddenly become aware of great music they never would have otherwise heard.

New isn't necessarily better, despite what our society seems to think and continuously push on us. A recent head-fi'er admitted he doesn't listen to anything pre-1970's. An ESPN writer recently trashed The Beatles. To me, a huge music fan, these trends sadden me in a way that is hard to express.

This isn't really a complaint as much as it is venting and concern. Thus, if your reading this, I ask you to recommend a couple of your favorite old recordings that date from before 1970.

Here are two lesser known titles I adore, both for sound quality and performance quality:

Barney Kessel - The Pole Winners

Sonny Rollins - Plus Four

Now....which ones are your favorites?

I love John Coltrane's Blue Train and Hank Mobley's Soul Station. The music is just stellar!
