The Year That Changed Jazz and Popular Music


Jazz changed forever in 1959. Want to sound cool at parties over this holiday break? Then you need to know your Jazz history.
The following four albums hit record shops in 1959, and they changed pop music and Jazz around the world. Our library has three of the four albums in our collection:

1: Miles Davis: Kind of Blue (greatest selling jazz album of all time)

2: The Dave Brubeck Quartet: Time Out (featuring the greatest selling jazz track “Take Five”) 

3: Charles Mingus: Mingus ah um

4: Ornette Coleman: The Shape of Jazz to Come

(And if you are looking for gift ideas, you can’t go wrong with these four albums.)
