1,000 Jazz Albums You Should Hear Before You Die – The Complete List

4 Apr

This list, which took the better part of four years, was inspired by those who said that jazz was limited to a certain style or type of performer. The idea behind this list was not to create a “best” albums list, but rather a extensive list of albums that covered as much of jazz history as possible.

Even after posting 1,000 albums, this list is really only a sample of the history of this great art form.

Hopefully you will find some great music you have never heard before and add to your collection.

Enjoy!

    An impressive work, and in my mind well worth your time [to me]. It makes me wish I were younger [66], so I could have the time to go “back”:, but will give it a supreme effort. Thanks for the heads up on KPLU, as well as jazz24.org. All in all, this makes for a “good day” on the web.
    Perhaps we will meet, next life?

    Again, thank you, “my friend”. All the best to you and yours.

    Sincerely,

      A very interesting list of performers. There is so much to learn about jazz it is ever growing.

  2. needs more miles November 10, 2013 at 7:16 pm #

    Needs even more Miles ?

    Is there any New Orleans music here? Anything from outside north east America? Serge Gainsbourg, Jorge Ben?

    Sorry but…. Diana Krall invalidates the effort here.

    Next time try a 100 album list, without repeating artists, and cut it off at 1976.

    Quite interesting. It shows there is a lot to be learn about jazz. Some absences are remarquable: Hugh Masekela from South Africa for example. A good job anyway!

  4. Don Peterson June 6, 2014 at 11:02 am #

    What a great list ! Lots of new ones for me to find. To the critics : Of course you could compile a better list, but you didn’t and won’t. Congratulations to Jazz 24.

    The backend part of your company supports these profit centers.
    However Yahoo marketing and other pay per click search engines offer some excellent traffic at
    a more reasonable price. You can download Avast Free Antivirus for free from the Avast website.

    I think that what you composed made a lot of sense. However, what about this?
    what if you wrote a catchier post title? I am not saying your information isn’t solid, however suppose you added
    something that makes people desire more? I mean 1,000 Jazz Albums
    You Should Hear Before You Die – The Complete List |
    Groove Notes is a little vanilla. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and
    note how they create news headlines to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little bit
    more interesting.
