Penny Lane Jazz Collection

 

At the outset, jazz was dance music, performed by swinging big bands. Soon the dance elements faded into the background and improvisation became the key element of the music. As the genre evolved, the music split into a number of different styles - from the speedy, hard-hitting rhythms of be-bop and the laid-back, mellow harmonies of cool jazz to the jittery, atonal forays of free jazz and the earthy grooves of soul jazz.

Our selection covers all of these styles, from Glen Miller and Louis Armstrong to Herbie Hancock and Bill Frisell, Billie Holiday to Diana Krall and of course other staple names such as Brubeck, Coltrane, Davis, Getz, Simone, Fitzgerald, Baker, just naming a few of the greats. We carry the original CDs and also wherever possible the Remastered Editions and Legacy Editions.
