The Jazz Workshop

Artist: George Russell

Year: 1957

Genre: Modal Jazz

Grade: A

George Russell was one of the most influential composers in jazz history. Using a mishmash of bebop, avant-garde, classical and pop techniques, his debut LP, The Jazz Workshop, remains one of the freshest, most unique albums of the decade. Unexpected chord changes lock into impossible melodies that are too eerie for cool jazz and too disarming for conventional bop, creating something totally original and distinct.
