Mo'Jazz 1955-1965 A Decade Of Jazz : 1958

Mo'Jazz 1955-1965 A Decade Of Jazz : 1958

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global radioshow chart and 4th in the global jazz chart.

Moanin' includes some of the greatest music Blakey produced in the studio with arguably his very best band. There are three tracks that are immortal and will always stand the test of time. The title selection is a pure tuneful melody stewed in a bluesy shuffle penned by pianist Bobby Timmons, while tenor saxophonist Benny Golson's classy, slowed "Along Came Betty" and the static, militaristic "Blues March" will always have a home in the repertoire of every student or professional jazz band.
Somethin' Else is a jazz album by saxophonist Julian “Cannonball” Adderley, released on Blue Note Records in 1958. It is notable for the presence and prominent contributions of Miles Davis in one of his few recording dates for Blue Note.
The twelve-bar blues "One for Daddy-O" was written by Nat Adderley for Chicago radio DJ Holmes "Daddy-O" Daylie. At the end of that track, Davis can be heard addressing producer Alfred Lion, saying "is that what you wanted, Alfred?"

Superb Dick, I'm just loving this series and any session that contains some Blue Note tracks always wins me over. I have both the Moaning' and 'Something Else' Lps and they are amongst my favourite Jazz albums and the tracks you chose highlight why. I've also got a couple of Jimmy Smith Lps but didn't know the track you uses but will now search out the 'House Party' Lp, thanks for the introduction! I'm also really liking what I hear from Dorothy Ashby and was at a picnic yesterday where my friend played one of her Lps. I'm also a big Lou Donaldson fan so this session has all the artists and flavours I enjoy about Jazz. Thank you for another fantastic session and I look forward to moving into 1959!


Thanks for all your support's really appreciated! Happy 2015 for you and your lovely family!!! And I hope you get a lot of gigs this year...

Dont ask me why but I was expecting a Cecli Taylor rendition of "African Flower" by Duke Ellington (on another BN record) instead of African Violets, which is a great discovery for me. Always amazed by how deep you digg the Blue Note vaults. Dorothy Ashby also totally unknown to me, and that sound reminds me a lot my father who was a big fan of that MJQ and Third Stream Music. I don't know (I even doubt it) if he knew that one but he would have been crazy about it. Thanks DD, as always.

I didn't know that album from Ben Webster, nor do I own the Tina Brooks or Cecil Taylor. I appreciate the diversity of artists that you are including in these compilations. Great work!


Smooth jazz jams!

Your encyclopediae of jazz is so cool ! Thanks Doctor Mo Jazz ! I love African violets ! I am just missing Blue Mitchell Jamph ;) but there are so many tunes that it is so hard to make a choice ! Best think with your decade mixes is that you perfectly capture the fragrances of the year, you perfeclty make us feel the shape of jazz to come ! Thanks Dick !!!


Thanks for your kind words friend! Blue Mitchell was in my first selection...but didn't make it to the final one! :=
