Dewi's Time Machine Pt. 1

Going through the classics I've never heard. One album per year.
1Ella Fitzgerald
Ella Sings Gershwin


1950

I understand why she is referred to as "The Lady of Song" or the "Queen of Jazz". I mean, this lady had an extremely long and fruitful live and carried her sweet velvet voice throughout most of the 20th century. To my surprise, this recording sounds so clean and contemporary (most probably after a huuuge post-processing) but I am glad I gave Mrs. Fitzgerald a listen and will certainly come back to visit the rest of her... overwhelming catalogue.
2Les Baxter
Ritual Of The Savage


1951

Well this was a blast. "Ritual of the Savage" seems to be the cornerstone of the Exotica genre, which mixes classical orchestration with instrumentantion and influences from asian and african music. There are hints of tropicalia, bossanova and god knows what else Les Baxter puts on the plate. In its historical context I am sure it was mindblowing.
3Billie Holiday
Billie Holiday Sings


1952

It's amazing how Billie Holiday's voice actually feels like the fountain from where modern jazz, soul and r&b have been drinking for 50 years. Her personal life was not an easy one, filled with abusive relationships and drug abuse, which made her music become available mostly after she passed away in 1959. I couldn't find this album specifically but listened to "Solitude" which is basically the same track listing but with a different order. The day after visited my local record shop and got a couple of records for like 3 bucks.
4Stan Kenton
New Concepts of Artistry in Rhythm


1953

Stan Kenton's educative nature breaths through this album, where he starts ceremoniously introducing each of the 22 members of the orchestra while he graciously leads the crowd with his piano and explains what is an orchestra and what are they about to experience. This might seem a bit pedantic today but to a crowd in the 50s it might be in order for people watching the majestic show of a jazz big band for the first time. Kenton's jazz has some latin influences which can be seen in tracks like "Taboo". My favourite track would be "Lonesome Train" which is gifted with the voice of american singer and actress Kay Brown.
