    When I think bebop I think Dizzy Gillespi and Charlie Parker. The work of either would be a really good start.

    There is a Dizzy album called "jambo carribe"(spelling might be wrong on that)

    but it's silly, it's really fun to listen to, not really bebop, it's like Caribbean sounding, it's cool though, I really dig it.

  9. Go buy a good Charlie Parker collection, a Dizzy Gillespie collection, and a Bud Powell collection. That should get you started.

    "Mr. PC" by Coltrane?
    Not to split hairs...that was Post-Bop.
  14. I was going to mention that, too.

    If you want a bop sampler, go get The Quintet, a live recording of a band with Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Max Roach, and Charlie Mingus. It ain't perfect, but it's as representative a sampler as you'll find with all the giants in the genre (well, Mingus is kind of a ringer; he was a last minute replacement).

    "Mr. P.C." comes from the hard-to-define era between hard bop and free jazz; JimK's "post bop" will work.

    Huh :confused:
  17. What on earth are you talking about?
  18. To those who are missing the joke, it makes a little more sense when you look at deepbob's re line.

    I see his point, but I think he is overlooking the fact that what can be called improvisational jazz includes bebop, hard bop, free jazz, and about a half dozen other subgenres. Meanwhile, Nick specifically asked for recordings in the bebop genre. Thus, the use of the term--as hoary as it may be.

    BTW--if you used "beatniks" instead of hippies, your joke might have been a little more obvious.
  19. is jaco's "Continuum" considered bebop?

    Thats a nice tune.

    No, I don't think continuum is bebop. Donna Lee is bebop. DL that Jaco solo. Then DL the band version by Miles Davis. That is bebop. Check out the names and titles in this thread. That is Bebop.
