1,000 Jazz Albums You Should Hear Before You Die (381-400)

9 Jan

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 381 through 400.

    Although not a full album but more an ‘albumette’ containing four songs, you should at least have listened to ‘You Are The Moon’ on the album Preface from the Dutch band Esha.
