The Jazz 100

(Hat tip to A Blog Supreme) The voting came in on the Jazz24.org list The Jazz 100: One Hundred Quintessential Jazz Songs. Damn, I can't remember what I voted for.... I think it was "Giant Steps" by John Coltrane, "Blue Pepper (Far East of the Blues)" by Duke Ellington, "Better Get Hit In Your Soul" by Charles Mingus, "All Blues" by Miles Davis and "Hat and Beard by Eric Dolphy. Does it make anyone nervous that no young (and few living) artists were represented?
