Seriously, if you could only have one CD/LP

48 posts in this topic

It would be "Conn500s entire jazz collection on one very long cd!" :P

Sorry, RT, this is simply just too painful to think about. It would be like imagining myself locked in solitary or having to sit out a six year stint in the Hanoi Hilton or something.

I am happily listening to Stanley Turrentine's "Jubilee Shout" right now as my mind deftly avoids this question. B)

How about a different take on this. What ONE recording would you choose for inclusion on NASA's Voyager probe? Remember that gold record that was sent out into the far reaches of the universe? What would you have included?

How did they sneak a Blind Willie Johnson recording onto the Voyager list? I guess there is no heavy duty R&B or rock n roll cause that might be grounds for invasion. :huh:

Billie Holiday: Lady Day - the old Columbia LP. It has my favorite jazz solo, Pres on "I Must Have that Man", which I've never tired of despite listening to it probably hundreds of times. Then there's Billie and all the great musicians playing with her. I could live with that one if it had to be just one.

I decided about 3 or 4 years ago that it would be a neat little compilation I found of 1920's-42 Ellington. C'mon, everyone's got something they've got more of a soft spot for than anything else - even you blokes with 1,000's of albums. KOB would be a close runner-up, though - why not?

No way I could do this - I would probably just grab whatever was closest to the tip of my tongue that day.

In fact, I'd choose Miles '58 over KOB. Maybe just because I love 'On Green Dolphin Street'. The most beautiful version of one of the greatest standards.

Disc one of the MCA/Decca/Universal Early Ellington set would do it for me too...same reasons as mentioned before- all that came after would be remembered. But it don't get much better than this.

I am afraid I would have to go with a set too.

However, if I was forced to take a single CD it would be First Meditations by Trane.

Wow, I have that very box set (the Shostakovich quartets), but I'm afraid I haven't listened to it probably as often as I should.

Your mention of it here in this thread may prompt me to give it another spin in the coming days. Thanks!!

The Fitzwilliam recordings are terrific. Enjoy!

Well I wouldn't care so much about having a CD but I would certainly wish to have an instrument with me.

If I was to take just one work it would be a recording of Mahler 10 - despite its problematic status, I find the final adagio gripping. With maybe Das Lied von der Erde on the B side?

Which instrument? Well, I think a cello, along with the score of Bach's solo suites, BWV 1007-1012.

Despite its problems (the under-rehearsed big band, Miles playing too close to the mic, Mobley's squeaks, and the truncated "Prince') I would take the 2Cd set Miles Davis at Carnegie Hall. The small group tracks swing incredibly hard (perhaps even harder than the Blackhawk tracks), and the whole thing has a fire and depth that feeds my musical soul every time out.

One album? Too hard.

One track? One of the takes of 'Saturday Night Function' - the first anything I can remember hearing.
