1,000 Jazz Albums You Should Hear Before You Die (161-180)

26 Sep

Here is another 20 to add to the list.

Remember that there is no ranking system here, and if you don’t see your favorite jazz album yet, it doesn’t mean it won’t show up.

Every week I will offer up twenty more, in no particular order and with no ranking system or common theme (other than jazz of course).

Hopefully these lists will inspire you to seek some of these albums out that perhaps you haven’t heard before, or revisit an old favorite. And as always, we want your thoughts on any or all of these albums. Either way, let’s get started with this week, and in no particular order, albums 161 through 180.

    Hi! I just want to say that I feel lucky to found this site and radio-. I’m from Argentina, I’m a student and this radio and its music are now my everyday company. So I don’t have nothing to complain about, because the music it’s beautiful, except that since yesterday I can’t see what are you playing, because the names in the iTunes reproducer just stoped (to be specific in Diana Krall’s song “Stop this world”. I think that’s a shame, because now I barely know the names of the songs. Please tell me if this a problem of my own -computer- or something you can work out.
    Thanks a lot.
    I will try to support you very soon.
    Greetings from Argentina…

    I just came from Yahoo and wished to say that I appreciate it for the tips on stopping head aches. I am hoping this may assist our daughter whom is affected with migranes. I must pass this on. Thank you again!
