Great/Amazing Debut Recordings

42 posts in this topic

I was thinking jazz albums from the beginning of the LP era to the present. 

But if you would like to post a 78 RPM debut, go for it.  (Just list the song titles on both sides. :))

I'll start the ball rolling with:

And, no surprise, I like this one too:

And one more. A more recent release:

A debut band LP, a debut label (but not Debut label!) LP, jazz in content, pop in result (or is it the other way around?

A couple contemporary examples

Irreversible Entanglements - s/t 

Jaimie Branch - Fly Or Die 

And the one, 

Van Morrison - Astral Weeks.  Anyone who doesn't consider it a Jazz album doesn't rate Richard Davis's central contribution. That's a hill I'll die on. :rolleyes:

Never realized that LP was the PJ debut album.  A good start for sure -- both band and label.

Yeah, I was just about to say something about between delmark and Nessa there's probably several handfuls of qualifiers.

Also whichever of Herbie Nichols' Blue Note 10-inchers was the first.

Depending on how you feel about Steig, but I think this was also Denny Zeitlin's debut:

Not entirely sure if this was LaFaro's debut (he'd been a sideman with Buddy Morrow's band), but he was in sensational form on this one.

Speaking of bassists, Russell Thorne!! Not only Russell's' debut but also perhaps his only commercial recording.
