1,000 Jazz Albums You Should Hear Before You Die (421-440)

Here is another 20 to add to the list.

Remember that there is no ranking system here, and if you don’t see your favorite jazz album yet, it doesn’t mean it won’t show up.

Every week I will offer up twenty more, in no particular order and with no ranking system or common theme (other than jazz of course).

Hopefully these lists will inspire you to seek some of these albums out that perhaps you haven’t heard before, or revisit an old favorite. And as always, we want your thoughts on any or all of these albums. Either way, let’s get started with this week, and in no particular order, albums 421 through 440.

  1. Greetings,

    I find your listings quite interesting.

    My blog is only One week old, but I know you would like it, as it pertains to “Jazz in film/film on Jazz.”

    You’re comments I am sure would be of the highest order, so I ask that you visit and share your thoughts.
