Jim Sherburne & West Coast Jazz

Jim Sherburne doubled my jazz world all by himself.

I love jazz; old jazz, new jazz, Dixie-land, Chicago, Bop, Free…but being of a certain age, I am particularly enthralled by jazz from the mid-20th century (doesn’t that make it and me sound accurately ancient?). 649 more words

Gerry Mulligan Quartet // Gerry Mulligan (Pacific Jazz PJLP-1)

This record marked the fruitful beginning of both Gerry Mulligan’s West Coast piano-less sound and the Pacific Jazz Records label.  Both would do much to popularize the laid-back, more academic sound of jazz that blew in from the Coast.  2,218 more words
