1959: The Year That Jazz Changed (CD)
Release Date: 01/10/12
Deluxe 4 CD set with 5 hours of the finest jazz in existence.
As the 1960s dawned, post-bop Jazz was finally ready to make the social, political and musical statements previously considered outside its remit. The release of Miles Davies's Kind of Blue, Dave Brubeck Quartet's Time Out, Charles Mingus's Mingus Ah Um, and Ornette Coleman's Shape of Jazz to Come all allow 1959 to be identified as a landmark year for the changes that would shake up the musicians and audience alike. This collection features these four groundbreaking records in their entirety, each with bonus tracks, giving a total running time of almost 5 hours of the finest Jazz in existence.
