    100 Essential Jazz Albums

    The New Yorker's David Remnick "compiled (this list) with the help of my New Yorker colleague Richard Brody. These hundred titles are meant to provide a broad sampling of jazz classics and wonders across the music’s century-long history. Early New Orleans jazz, swing, bebop, cool jazz, modal jazz, hard bop, free jazz, third stream, and fusion are all represented, though not equally. We have tried not to overdo it with expensive boxed sets and obscure imports; sometimes it couldn’t be helped. We have also tried to strike a balance between healthy samplings of the innovative giants (Armstrong, Ellington, Parker, Davis, Coltrane, etc.) and the greater range of talents and performances." 1.

  13. This song popped into my head this morning while I was ordering breakfast Not sure why, but it's the kind of thing that used to play on the radio during the summer "Stoned Soul Picnic" was a popular song from the year 1968.
