Money Jungle is a jazz album by Duke Ellington with Charles Mingus and Max Roach recorded on September 17, 1962 and released in February 1963 by United Artists Jazz. At the original issue Money Jungle was track number 1 out of 7 tracks. In 1987 Money Jungle was reissued with 13 tracks on Blue Note.
Duke Ellington surprised the jazz world in 1962 with his historic trio session featuring Charles Mingus and Max Roach. Not in a mood to simply rework older compositions, the bulk of the LP focused on music he wrote specifically for the session. “Money Jungle” is a thunderous opener, a blues that might be classified somewhere between post-bop and avant-garde. The gem of the date is the fragile, somewhat haunting ballad “Fleurette Africaine,” where Mingus’ floating bassline and Roach’s understated drumming add to the mystique of an Ellington work that has slowly been gathering steam among jazz musicians as a piece worth exploring more often. “Very Special” is a jaunty upbeat blues, while the angular, descending line of “Wig Wise” also proves to be quite catchy. Ellington also revisits “Warm Valley” (a lovely ballad indelibly associated with Johnny Hodges) and an almost meditative “Solitude.” Thunderous percussion and wild basslines complement a wilder-than-usual approach to “Caravan.” Every jazz fan should own a copy of this sensational recording session.

How My Heart Sings! is a 1962 album by jazz musician Bill Evans.
Writing for Allmusic, music critic Thom Jurek wrote of the album “This is a tough recording; it flies in the face of the conventions Evans himself has set, and yet retrains the deep, nearly profound lyricism that was the pianist’s trademark.” [source]

This amazing live recording from Febuary 10, 1962 (“John Coltrane at Birdland 1962″) is with John Coltrane and Eric Dolphy at their peak shape, music with great power; Royal jelly for the soul. It was released 2001.
“In its relatively short lifetime, jazz has undergone a regular succession of stylistic changes, all of wich have brought with them the familiar hue and cry to the effect that the new direction would compromise the spirit of the music. Yet when Eric Dolphy and John Coltrane teamed up in the latter half of 1961, their music provoked such hostility from the critical fraternity that both men felt it necessary to appear in print to convey what lay behind their music. however successful either musicians or critics were in this exercise, it did serve to focus even more public attention on what was a hightly individual form of music. Yet the number of recordings of the Coltrane/Dolphy band did not exactly proliferate, althought previously unissued recordings were issued after both Coltrane and Dolphy had died. This Cd is therefore a welcome addition to what is still a slim discography of a band led by two kindred spirits.” [source]
