Miles Davis’ Jack Johnson album was released in February, 1971, and has already been cited by a noted critic as one of his favorite jazz albums of the 1970’s

Our most recent edition of “Reminiscing in Tempo: Memories and Opinion” asked critics, writers and musicians the question: “What are 3 or 4 of your favorite jazz albums of the 1960’s?”  We received responses from some of the profession’s most prominent thinkers, including Gary Giddins, Dan Morgenstern, Michael Cuscuna, John McLaughlin, Terry Teachout, and many others.  To read the entire edition, go here.

Meanwhile, we are asking a new question of many of the same people (and others as well).  This time, the question is “What are 3 or 4 of your favorite jazz albums of the 1970’s?”  Hoping to publish the edition yet this month…Stay tuned.
