Blue Note 1959

Blue Note 1959

Playing tracks by

Bennie Green, Horace Silver Quintet, The Three Sounds, Lou Donaldson, Sonny Clark and more.

Chart positions

This show was 12th in the global jazz chart.

1959 is an interesting year at Blue Note. Not a huge number of releases compared to 1957 or 1960, but quality stuff. With the passing of Sonny Clark, the 'house trio' duties are eventually taken up by Horace Parlan's trio the following year, but on these sessions the core changes constantly.

Fine Jazz and every now and then I'm enjoying your blog, too.

And this is why Mixcloud is great. Apart from possibly "Sweetness" and "Fuego," if I were to create what you have done here my tracks would be very different ones. I don't even own the Pearson, Reese, or Sonny Red ones. Nice work and thanks for your efforts in keeping classic jazz alive. Peace.
