    Re: Styles of Jazz Music

    Viktoria Tolstoy - Stations
    Qobuz 24/96




    I'm always on the lookout for good female jazz vocalists.
    I know that in my lifetime, chances that we'll have another Ella, Sarah or Billie are very small, but I'm hopeful..
    Meanwhile, we do have splendid singers, such as Cecile McLorin Salvant.
    But the three divas I mentioned are still unequalled.

    Viktoria Tolstoy is one of the good, but not great singers.
    In the more poppy songs here on this album, she's very enjoyable, in the jazzy pieces, she holds her own quite well too.
    All in all, I can recommend this.
    Three stars and a half.

    ACT is a label that has been putting out a lot of good to great albums the last years.
    Vivid Audio - Burmester - Hegel - Marantz - Oppo - Pioneer 60" - Wireworld

    Re: Styles of Jazz Music

    I am very much a beginner in the appreciation of jazz. I didn't have really any jazz music until 2016, when I bought a very large collection of tape safety masters, so I missed this thread until now.

    I saw with interest the different classifications of jazz one of the first posts in the thread. I also saw with interest the video about the four great albums on 1959. Happens that my collection has three of the four albums, Kind of Blue and Time Out (both on 1/2" 15ips 2 track safety masters) and Ah-Um on 1/4" 15ips 2 track - with the full almost 60 minute album, instead of the 40+ album with significant cuts to several of the songs.

    A few questions:

    I didn't see either Miles Davis or John Coltrane mentioned in the different jazz classifications - are they generally classified in a particular jazz genre?

    Are Three Blind Mice and ECM labels considered jazz - and if so what genres?

    Finally, are Muddy Waters and Albert King considered jazz or something else (I have them listed as Pop/Rock in my catalogue of albums).

    Thanks, Larry

    And she is Leo Tolstoy’s niece. She does a good cover of Herbie Hancock’s “Tell Me a Bedtime Story.”

    Re: Styles of Jazz Music

    Muddy Waters and Albert King do/did not play Jazz. They are strictly blues artists.

    As for what kind of Jazz Miles played, that depends. He was part of the movement that introduced Be-Bop. He single handedly changed Jazz with The Birth Of The Cool. Then again with Kind Of Blue (Modal Music). He also did it again with Bitches Brew. The same "depends" also applies to Coltrane.

    Three Blind Mice is not jazz.

    ECM has a lot of jazz artists and recordings. That includes many Avant garde jazz musicians. ECM also have contemporary classical (music composed by Arvo Pärt for example).

    Re: Styles of Jazz Music

    According to Wikipedia Three Blind Mice is a Japanese label that specializes in native Japanese Jazz artists.

    From Wikipedia:
    Three Blind Mice is a Japanese jazz record label founded in June 1970 as a showcase for Japan's emerging jazz performers. It has produced more than 130 albums have been released since. So far they have won the Jazz Disc Award five times in Japan. Produced by Takeshi Fujii (producer) and often recorded by the Yoshihiko Kannari, TBM created jazz records by Japanese players since the 1970s and became known for its audiophile sound quality. TBM's records captured a very important, vibrant era in the development of Japanese jazz. Stars like Isao Suzuki, Tsuyoshi Yamamoto, George Kawaguchi, Terumasa Hino and Mari Nakamoto recorded their very first albums with the label. Artists also include Shuko Mizuno's "Jazz Orchestra '73", Toshiyuko Miyama and Masaru Imada.

    ​IME ECM is a Jazz label that also does some classical.

    Ah! There is a group called Three Blind Mice and that's what I was referring to.
    I was not aware of the label. Thanks for the info!
