Ten Jazz Albums to Hear Before You Die

Kind of Blue
I can still remember the first time I heard this album.  I was 17, and I was driving my Subaru Legacy Wagon in the rain.  I drove the car to my grandparent’s house, and put it on.  It was only about a five-minute drive, but I ended parked outside of their house, the windshield wipers swatting away rain — the album blaring.  I sat in the driveway until the album ended, and, well, music was never the same for me.  It’s a composition, released in 1959, that is often considered the definitive jazz album.  Honestly, there are some jazz purists who probably would die if they found out our generation was unfamiliar with it.  Just listen to who was featured: Coltrane, Bill Evans, Cannonball Adderley, Paul Chambers, Jimmy Cobb. If you’re about to go sky diving, and you’re not sure if you’re going to survive, play this album on the car ride over. Why is it so great? Let’s not try to put it into words. It might be something unsayable. - Joseph Lapin

“It reminds me of a passage from George Orwell’s Down and Out in Paris and London, in which Orwell, having just been fired from a job washing dishes at a restaurant in Paris and entirely penniless, describes the joy of suddenly reaching “rock bottom. “It is a feeling of relief, almost of pleasure, at knowing yourself at last genuinely down and out. You have talked so often of going to the dogs—and well, here are the dogs, and you have reached them, and you can stand it. It takes off a lot of anxiety.”

Excerpt From: Nestor, James. “Deep.” Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (www.hmhco.com).

So that was Mrs Lundegaard on the floor in there. And I guess that was your accomplice in the wood chipper. And those three people in Brainerd. And for what? For a little bit of money. There’s more to life than a little money, ya know. Don’t ya know that? And here ya are, and it’s a beautiful day. Well. I just don’t understand it.
