THAT'S a great reference list!

I bookmarked it in my "music and recordings" folder.

Thanks for posting it.

This list assumes that great Jazz recordings over the last 30-40 years don't exist.
Some would argue that is true.. i have cited a top 100 list that is more inclusive.

Kenny Garrett

Yeah, and there is so much good stuff still happenin'... check out Kenny Garrett, with the young wonder drummer Chris Dave, straight from church to Kenny Garrett.

I do not know if the sound quality ''has never been better'', the sound of the albums from that label, http://www.soundliaison.com/, reminds me of some of my favorite albums from the end of the '50. I agree that jazz music is still evolving and that the european influence is starting to show.

Actually, I believe the most recent release on that list is from 1973 (Herbie's "Headhunters"). So, there is more like 44 years to come up with a jazz recording to replace something on that list.


At least half of my top 25 jazz recordings, would contain recordings from the last 30-40 years.

Chic Corea, Allan Holdsworth, The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Keith Jarrett, Steve Coleman, Cecil Taylor, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Weather Report and others would be represented on my list.

Jazz is a living, breathing art form, not some sort of museum piece that stopped progressing in the late 60's, as many would have you believe.
