100 Years Of Jazz: A Celebration Through Ten Masterpieces (Various Artists) Box Set 10PC Various Artists CD 2017 Release Date 12/15/17


2017 marks one of the greatest anniversaries in the history of music: 100 years from the first commercial jazz recording. 100 Years Of Jazz is an essential box set including ten essential masterpieces.

Each CD includes a beautiful reproduction of the original and iconic album covers. Ten milestones in the history of western music, created and produced by some of the greatest American composers and performers ever. From the highly sophisticated music of Bill Evans, Chet Baker, and Dave Brubeck, through the great voices and personalities of Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, and heavyweights such as Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, and Charles Mingus. Bill Evans's Waltz For Debby (1961) captures the quintessential piano trio of Bill Evans, Scott La Faro, and Paul Motian live at the Village Vanguard in 1961 - Wonderful music that would influence generations to come. Nina Simone's Forbidden Fruit (1961) is one of Nina's finest recordings; a strong and varied set of songs performed by the unique high priestess of soul. (Including three Oscar Brown's originals). Chet Baker's Jazz At Ann Arbor (1955) is a west coast, cool jazz manifesto, recorded live during Chet Baker's first national tour in 1954. Miles Davis's Relaxin' With (1958) features the first Miles Davis quintet with John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones. Eric Dolphy's Out There (1961) sees the great jazz visionary create one of his best sound creations, featuring Ron Carter, George Duvivier, and Roy Haynes. John Coltrane's Blue Train (1957) was the first big step in Coltrane's discography. Here Coltrane heads up a powerful three-horn frontline, including the legendary Lee Morgan and Curtis Fuller. Charles Mingus's Pithecanthropus Erectus (1956) is one of the truly great modern jazz albums. It marks Mingus's breakthrough as a leader of a hard-driving combo with, among others, the great Jackie McLean and Mal Waldron. Dave Brubeck's Time Out (1959) features the magnificent alto sax voice of Paul Desmond and the outstanding drumming of Joe Morello and includes classic hits such as "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo A La Turk". Billie Holiday's Velvet Mood (1956) is a great mid-fifties recording. The great Lady Day is backed here by classic jazz luminaries such as Benny Carter and Henry "Sweet" Edison. Duke Ellington's Money Jungle (1962) features Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, and Max Roach. It's the historical "one off" studio session of three jazz giants.
