This time capsule, recorded in 1959 in Rudy Van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ, living room and left undisturbed in the Blue Note vaults until now, contains the essential DNA of the first flowering of hard bop in the late '50s. All the genre hallmarks are present: There are intricate chase-scene originals and clever arrangements (the standard "Close Your Eyes") and brash blues-inflected outbursts that light up the solos. And yet, transcending those individual traits, defining not just the notes but the very spirit of the endeavor, is a quality that doesn't get discussed enough in jazz—precision, as in persnickety dotted i's and crossed t's.

At times it's downright startling hearing these five musicians nail the details to the wall. They're hardly "just coolin'" here; they're attentive to the small nuances of tunes that might have been written the morning of the session. You can detect the commitment in the pitch-bending doiiiits and the staccato single-note jabs, in the explosion of a long-cresting press roll and the deliberate, nothing-extra stride of a Blakey-trademarked medium-tempo swing. You can hear it in the way trumpeter Lee Morgan and tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley phrase together, adding grace notes that are almost inaudible but key nonetheless. And you can't miss it in the thrillingly open lanes where the solos happen. Blakey was revered for the communication he cultivated between musicians; using a repertoire of hits and jabs, he pulled his collaborators into rich, sometimes boisterous discussions, a mode of interplay that in many ways defines hard bop.

There are plenty of examples on this record, but perhaps the most crystalline comes during Morgan's first few choruses on "Jimerick," a blazing uptempo blues. He begins with a short inversion of the theme, first restating it in a lazy way. Then he articulates more aggressively, as though trying to establish consensus on the tempo. Blakey picks that up, and jabs out an even sharper response from the metal rim of the snare drum. That unleashes some mean Morgan double-time bebop; what began as a single-note bugle call becomes an intricate conversation. Each element of that conversation is notable for its clarity, and each new soloist contributes to it in a different way—check the unhurried, wonderfully lucid way Mobley carves up the opening "Hipsippy Blues." The tune is one of three originals Mobley wrote for the date, and if it's familiar that's because it was included on a monumental live recording captured a few months later—At the Jazz Corner of the World, a fiery and complex document that's become part of the "essential listening" jazz canon. Just Coolin', which is apparently the only other recording of this short lived incarnation of the group, might be a step below that in terms of intensity. But only a step. © Tom Moon/Qobuz

Érase una vez... Blue Note en 10 álbumes

¡El más mítico sello de jazz se servía de los mejores ingredientes! Los mejores artistas, repertorios originales, directores artísticos con intuición, tomas de sonido excepcionales, portadas estéticamente impresionantes, eclecticismo genérico (be-bop, hard bop, soul jazz, jazz modal, free)... todo, todo estaba ahí, en las grabaciones de la escudería fundada en 1939 por Francis Wolff y Alfred Lion, dos alemanes escapados del régimen nazi. Y de su amplio catálogo Qobuz ha seleccionado diez álbumes fundamentales. Algunos han alcanzado categoría de clásicos. Otros, son maravillas subestimadas. Pero los diez son auténticamente imprescindibles y han contribuido a configurar la estética Blue Note.

Miles Davis, con los dedos en el enchufe

En 1968 Miles Davis cae rendido al embrujo del duende eléctrico. Fascinado por la revolución psicodélica y funky de Jimi Hendrix y otros, como Sly Stone, el trompetista se metamorfosea y, de paso, trastorna el mundo del jazz.

Bossa nova, la ola que no cesa

Desde su aparición a finales de los 50, la bossa nova se convertiría en ingrediente fundamental de la exuberante paleta sonora brasileña. Esta música de alto poder evocador ha conquistado a artistas de todo el mundo y dado a conocer a una serie de intérpretes de primera fila, cuyas composiciones han alcanzado ya estatuto de clásicos contemporáneos.
