20 Albums to Begin Your Jazz Journey
This blog tackles the thankless task “20 albums to begin a journey into jazz”. We could all quibble about a few inclusions and a few omissions. But skating through this list, I am remined just how many exquisite and defining albums were issued in the ‘50s and ‘60s. What an era!
perfect for people who want to get to know the genre better!
I looked at the sun, baby, it was gettin’ low
I looked at my baby, she was standin’ in her door
You remember the day you drove me from your door?
If I hadn’a loved you, I wouldn’a come here no more
I’m gonna hitch up my buggy, I’m gonna saddle up my black mare
I’m gonna find my companion anywhere, anywhere, anywhere
