My Top 10 Influential​ Jazz Albums – Bill Farrish



2. These Rooms – Jim Hall Trio with Tom Harrell, Steve LaSpina and Joey Baron. Very overlooked recording and one of Hall’s best. If you haven’t heard this recording you’re seriously missing something special. Absolute desert island recording.

3. Smokin’ at the Half Note – Wes Montgomery, Winston Kelly, Paul Chambers, Jimmy Cobb. Wes changed guitar forever and here’s  the proof, a live recording and every note Wes plays is pure magic. The timing, the feel, the note choices it’s all there. 

4. Where Legends Dwell – JoAnne Brackeen, Eddie Gomez, Jack DeJohnette. I had already heard “Aft” and “FiFi Goes to Heaven” but it was because of this recording I actually sought out and studied with JoAnne for a while. I had to learn where those sounds were coming from.
