I saw the big Jazz of the Century show in Paris last week which I was reviewing. Remembered a strange teenage period when I all I would listen to was jazz from 1957 to 1962. These are the pieces of music I was particularly obsessed with...
Miles Davis: Blue in Green
Charlie Mingus - I X Love (from the album Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus)
John Coltrane: Lush Life (Click the top right box to listen)
Errol Garner in general (Click the top right box again)
It took me decades to find the piece of music at the back of this scene in Cat On a Hot Tin Roof (Andre Previn 'Lost in a Summer Night')
