The jazz albums listed below are among the greatest ever recorded. Mostly selected from the golden "modern" jazz music era of 1940's to the 1970's, these recordings captured the great passion and emotion that these musicians spent a lifetime developing. Kind Of Blue - Miles Davis While it is one of the top selling jazz albums of all time, many consider this to be THE best jazz album of all time. This may be because this unrehearsed recording session from 1959 marks a great turning point in jazz history as well as showcasing the top form of some legendary musicians. This album had a strong influence from Eastern European culture as Brubeck used many of their rhythms and time signatures. The complex rhythms he uses sound unique yet very natural and easy to listen to, probably the reason for it's success.

Rolling Stone’s definitive list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. King’s first album for the Stax label combines his hard, unflashy guitar playing with the sleek sound of the label’s house band, Booker T. and the MG’s. Hits such as Crosscut Saw and Laundromat Blues earned King a new rock & roll audience. Then this solo debut album of razor-sharp dance pop became the first by a female performer to score four Top Five hits, including Girls Just Want to Have Fun and Time After Time.

This was the time period of 78rpm singles not albums, therefore most of the Greatest BeBop Jazz Albums are classic album compilations of the Blue Note, Savoy, Dial and Musicraft 78s that were issued at the time and only later collated on the then new 33rpm albums issued from about 1949 onwards. Charlie Parker's Dial recordings are the cornerstone of any BeBop collection, I’d rate them slightly higher than the excellent Savoy recordings but both are excellent. The first 4 recordings below were all recorded on the same session which is quite simply one of the greatest jazz sessions ever. Try Moose the Mooche Charlie's homage to his wheelchair bound drug dealer. Warning these are slightly hissy transfers from the original 10 LPs.
