Howlin' Wolf - Evil (Is Going On) The 50 Greatest Jazz Albums…Ever At the end of any year it’s a great time to look back and so we’ve decided to attempt to come up with a definitive list of the 50 Greatest Jazz Albums of all time. Impossible, you are probably thinking, and it probably is, but rather than just thinking of our favourites we decided to take a good look through the web to see what other lists there are and combine our findings. As usual we expect many of you to disagree, sometimes strongly, but as usual we will love hearing from you. It took us several days of searching but here it is, the 50 greatest… 50.

Keyboard Legend Geddy Lee: Rush’s Many-Layered Musical Genius “More is more.” It’s the seminal concept which is a constant in the music of Rush. It’s also the lifelong principal which drives Geddy Lee. He’s always believed that he should learn about things that turn him on. He’s obsessive about those things. When he’s interested, he wants to learn every detail and facet about his obsession. Geddy’s persistent search for “more” was always accompanied by “better”. Geddy served as Rush’s magnificent bass-player, singer, and keyboardist … all at one time. By the 1980s, Rush had entered its synthesizer dominant era. In 1983, Rush performed a warm-up tour preceding the release of the Grace Under Pressure album in 1984. Red Sector A is one significant track from the album, because it was partially inspired by Geddy’s mother’s liberation from the Bergen-Belsen Nazi concentration camp. Rush’s massive and exciting technology provide many new musical textures in this live performance: One of Geddy’s mind-blowing bass solos: Geddy is disciplined.
