Can you identify one jazz recording that changed how you thought about music? I think I can, in my case. May sound a little vanilla, but it was the Oscar Peterson Trio's album "West Side Story" in 1962, with Ray on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums. I was 10 years old at the time. I'd had piano lessons, played drums in the school band and started teaching myself guitar, so I'd played some instruments. More important, the West Side Story score had been on the record player (yes, the record player) nonstop since 1957 when the show came out, then moreso in '61 when the movie came out, as my family was *very* into musical theater. Don't know if you're familiar with what Oscar, Ray and Ed did with their version, but they basically deconstructed and reconstructed 7 of the West Side Story tunes on their album. While Oscar is of course amazing and Ed is totally solid, Ray is the "x" factor on the album. Still some of the best bass playing I've ever heard. Since I already knew the material well, their album doing that material in a completely different way had a huge impact on me as a 10 year old. It was somewhat stunning to me. I learned how to take something that seemed written in stone and think it through differently, musically. And I will add that that album perhaps more than any other made me want to be a bass player. Although within a year or so the Beatles were on the scene, and Sir Paul sealed the deal in that regard. Anyway - just reflecting. Is there one jazz recording for you that changed how you thought about music?
