Bring out your DarkJazz!

Postby Soolsma » Fri Feb 03, 2017 1:12 pm

So I've noticed I'm not the only forum member here who is fond of darkjazz. Not too surprising, as I'd say Badalamenti was pretty important to the establishment of the genre.

This thread is for sharing all your favorite dark jazz tracks/albums. Feel free to derive a bit from the genre if you feel like.

I'll start with this brilliantly named band.

I discovered this genre pretty recently and I'm not really familiar with any bands apart from the four - Bohren & der Club of Gore, Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation and, of course, the Dale Cooper Quartet - which seem to be the ones everyone talks about. I'd love to get some recommendations.

Love this album, especially the first track.

> Rainwater, try putting everything after ''watch?v='' , so don't include ''watch?=v"

Ok, so here's another, it's not 'darkjazz' but it's jazz and it's certainly dark.

You mean you don't see the video? It works for me.
Thanks for the rec.

This is a track I love. Now, this isn't really jazz, but it gets quite jazzy at times and you did allow for derivation from the genre:

nice thread...i really like yusef lateef, and that's my favorite album by that particular line-up of crimson.
i was sorry to hear about wetton's passing today.
here's some george crumb, not jazz but his work does allow for some improv, and there are some jazzy harmonies here and there. a lot of his work
is pretty dark and i like it a lot. this is the devil music and danse macabre section from his string quartet, "black angels":

Nice going peeps, keep it up! :D



I adore this song's turnaround halfway through.

that's cool, nice album cover too.

do you guys know patty waters? her stuff takes a lot of patience but she's probably the darkest jazz vocalist i've ever heard. her version of " black is the color of my true love's hair" from 1965 is pretty long but worth it...she starts off fairly low and straightforward, but gradually gets more and more insane...swooping to nearly three octaves above middle c and then back down for some evil moans and disturbing shrieking. it's a truely psychotic reading of the song, yet it's really so beautiful at the same time.
i wish she had made more albums.

next step: rocket science!

It warms my heart to know there are other Lynch fans that like George Crumb and John Zorn (one of my idols) :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Dwindling off track here, but had to let you peeps hear my favorite interpretation of Caravan. Idk still feels more dark than light to me.



@Patty Waters: Very psychotic indeed :)

In the meanwhile I'll also keep on posting some TKDE stuff, their oeuvre is just amazing.
