For the first time, the entire development of jazz captured in one enormous collection

This Encyclopedia of Jazz encompasses the complete history of the genre, from classic jazz, to swing and the era of big bands, to bebop, cool jazz and hard bop. The collection contains many thousands of tracks from an enormous range of artists, both well-known and more obscure, but all vital to jazz's musical development

Dive in and enjoy! THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF JAZZ PART 1 - CLASSIC JAZZ [hide=Classic Jazz]From New Orleans to Harlem. The most important recordings of the golden age. Mit King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Johnny Dodds, Jimmie Noone, Sidney Bechet, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Fletcher Henderson, Earl Hines, Jack Teagarden, Red Nichols, Clarence Williams, Muggsy Spanier, Frank Teschemacher, Adrian Rollini u.a. 100-CD-Box with original recordings

From the early days to the late 1950s, the highlights of Swing are presented on these 100 CDs

The music of the decade between the Depression and World War II gave people hope and entertainment. Swing records, ballrooms and touring bands made Swing one of the most rousing Jazz styles

One of the reasons is evidently that the music was made for dancing and people were tempted to dance. But the big bands alone were not the cause of the jazz craze but also the abundance of small groups presenting the best soloists at the time. The swing era celebrated them: soloists such as Lester Young whose later work is covered to a great extent in the encyclopedia, or Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster, Jack Teagarden, Oscar Peterson, Teddy Wilson, Roy Eldridge

A number of the great swing musicians met in Lionel Hampton s small groups. In 1937 the vibraphonist began recording under his own name and the conditions were extremely favorable. He had signed a contract with the Victor label which enabled him to get any musician he liked into the recording studio. Consequently he recorded with the elite of jazz musicians, producing swinging gems

Similarly thrilling are the recordings of jam sessions and all-star groups; the set-up often looks like a who-is-who of the greatest jazz musicians

Jazz musicians always loved jam sessions but in the past they could not be recorded because the sessions were too long for the old shellac records. Only when the long-playing record had started its triumphant advance in 1953, it was possible to record long sessions. Technical progress introduced a new quality into recorded jazz.[/hide]THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF JAZZ PART 2 - SWING TIME [hide=Swing Time]All-Star Swing groups with their most famous recordings. Mit Henry Allen, Roy Eldrige, Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Johnny Hodges, Benny Carter, Fats Waller, Art Tatum, Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Red Norvo, Teddy Wilson, Buck Clayton, Django Reinhardt, Jack Teagarden, Rex Stewart, Chu Berry, Charlie Christian, Louis Armstrong u.a. 100-CD-Box with original recordings

100 CDs provide you with the most exciting, most beautiful and most swinging recordings from this period

The glorious time of the big bands which was followed by the dance hall craze in the swing era started in the 1920s. Bandleader Fletcher Henderson and his arranger Don Redman developed the style of the big bands. They organized the band completely different from the way it was done in classical jazz. Now they had a brass section with more trumpets and trombones, a reed section with several saxophones and a strong rhythm section. The result was a new powerful sound, based on sophisticated arrangements fired by hot solos. The Henderson band that employed soloist like Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster and Chu Berry on tenor and trumpeters Rex Stewart, Roy Eldridge and Henry Red Allen was the role model for many following big bands

Benny Goodman, the King of Swing of the 1930s, learned a lot from Henderson. He copied his big band concept and played his arrangements. Henderson wrote some of his best pieces for Goodman. His Let s Dance became the motto of an entire country in fact, of the whole world. The encyclopedia includes many recordings of Goodman s big band in the 1930s and 1940s

For many connoisseurs however Count Basie s orchestra was the ideal of a big band, fiercely swinging and relaxed. In 1932 Basie formed his first band with members of the Bennie Moten orchestra and he successfully led big bands for many years. He worked with soloists such as the trumpeters Harry Sweets Edison and Buck Clayton, saxophonists Lester Young and Herschel Evans and the famous All American Rhythm Section with Walter Page on Bass, Freddie Green on guitar and the drummer Jo Jones. In 1939 the Basie band performed at the Carnegie Hall in New York City, playing two concerts From Spiritual to Swing which were organized by the promoter and Basie fan John Hammond.[/hide]THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF JAZZ PART 3 - BIG BANDS [hide=Big Bands]The giants of the Swing Big Band era, when Swing dance was a worldwide craze. Mit Fletcher Henderson, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, Jimmie Lunceford, Charlie Barnet, Artie Shaw, Woody Herman, Stan Kenton, Gene Krupa, Lionel Hampton, Harry James, Cab Calloway, Glenn Miller, Chick Webb, Louis Armstrong u.a. 100-CD-Box with original recordings

The most important recordings of Bebop from the 1940s and 1950s in this exclusive box

Bebop marked the beginning of Modern Jazz a musical and technical revolution and the first example of Jazz as an art form. New harmonic structures coupled with improvising at a fast tempo together with hip outfits like big, thick-rimmed glasses, Zoot suits and goatee beards those were bebop s trademarks

Bebop was developed at the Harlem Club Minton s Playhouse. Black musicians met there to jam after they had finished their routine in a band. Tired of playing swing standards, they were looking for new possibilities to express themselves in their music. Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker were the key figures, attracting other musicians. Pianist Thelonious Monk and drummer Kenny Clarke were there as a rule because they were members of the house band. Among the musicians who helped to lift jazz to new hights was pianist Bud Powell, who appeared at Minton s as a very young man, when he was just seventeen, for the first time. His playing reminded admirers of the flowing melodies on Charlie Parker s alto

The new music was mainly disseminated via concerts and found a rapidly growing crowd of fans. When bebop conquered Europe, the big music companies finally saw their chance

It is quite natural that the works of Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker dominate the recordings of the bebop era. Both can be heard on many titles under their own names and as participants in live concerts. They often performed with Jazz At The Philharmonic, organized by Norman Granz, and played in the company of jazz greats such as Lester Young, Oscar Peterson, Coleman Hawkins and Roy Eldridge. The impresario Gene Norman also organized bebop concerts and produced the recordings under his label Just Jazz. Many concerts were recorded on the American Westcoast, featuring musicians like Chet Baker, Gerry Mulligan and Wardell Gray

First there were only black musicians experimenting in Minton s Playhouse, but in the course of time white musicians arrived, listened and picked up new harmonies and tones. Musicians like Stan Getz, Zoot Sims, Al Cohn and Kai Winding became protagonists of a white bebop, and many recordings demonstrate that all the outstanding musicians speak the same language.[/hide]THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF JAZZ PART 4 - BEBOP STORY [hide=Bebop Story]A musical revolution that radically changed the road of Jazz. Mit Charlie Parker, Charlie Christian, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Fats Navarro, Sonny Stitt, Miles Davis, Bud Powell, Kenny Dorham, Wardell Gray, Kenny Clarke, J.J. Johnson, Kai Winding, Serge Chaloff, Gerry Mulligan, Stan Getz, John Lewis u.a. 100-CD-Box with original recordings

The greats of Modern Jazz with their best and most characteristic recordings in this 100 CD box

In the 1950s Jazz spread throughout the world. With the advent of the long playing record, jazz improvisation was freed from the limitations of the old 78s three minute playing time, providing the space for passionate and lengthy artistic statements

Everything was different after the dramatic evolution initiated by bebop. It seemed as if a valve had been opened, permitting various currents to flow, trends in music which all sound more modern, more sophisticated or intellectual. Now you have cool jazz, Westcoast jazz, hardbop and all those variations of jazz which are modern but have little resemblance to the experiments in Minton s Playhouse mainstream is the common term

Hardbop is the logical resumption of bebop, but down to earth with roots into the blues. Many hardbop musicians, especially pianist Horace Silver, show a strong influence of gospel and spiritual. Silver and alto saxophonist Julian Cannonball Adderley are the most important protagonists of a hardbop variation called soul jazz that found a large following. The term funky , in the past a dirty word, was also used to characterize this exciting type of music

Next to the drummer Art Blakey trumpeter Clifford Brown and tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins belong to the founding fathers and most important protagonists of modern bop

Sonny Rollins, in the words of Miles Davis the greatest tenor saxophonist of all times, was first influenced by the mighty sound of Coleman Hawkins, but developed his own technique of improvising. Again and again he surprised his fans with fresh ideas after he had withdrawn from the public light. The saxophone colossus played with many giants of jazz, among others John Coltrane.[/hide]THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF JAZZ PART 5 - MODERN JAZZ [hide=Modern Jazz] In this set, you'll find Cool Jazz, Westcoast, Hard Bop & Modern Mainstream. Mit Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, Chet Baker, Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan, Clifford Brown, Art Blakey, John Coltrane, Horace Silver, Sonny Rollins, Lee Morgan, Cannonball & Nat Adderley, Thelonious Monk, Dexter Gordon, Modern Jazz Quartet, Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner, Jimmy Smith... and more
