the blue note sixties - part two.


The same as the first part, only completely different. Again, I'm largely but not entirely trying to skirt the obvious. Contingently essential. Includes Bobby Hutcherson, Eric Dolphy, and Andrew Hill.

I enjoyed very much your two last jazz mixes from Blue Note labell. Joe Henderson was wonderful and I admire so much Eric Dolphy (even the classical Sweet and Tender :).
Ah... Pompeian by Bobby! And the amusing song by Donald Byrd with his Friends!
Merci et joyeux dimanche musical.╲♪╱❈╲♫╱

Yes, I found out about them all as a teenager through Blue Note, as they all played on each other's sessions. (Wherever you hear vibes, that's Bobby. And Herbie Hancock logged tons of session time too.) They even issued some daringly avant-garde releases (notably Dolphy, Andrew Hill, and Cecil Taylor.) But they did not slack on hard bop or soul-jazz. Evidently, they got one rehearsal session and one recording session. It was on-the-job training, which I think has proved superior to the later Jazz Education establishment, which turns out players who sound like... Blue Note in the 60s! Thank you for listening.
