If you like your jazz a little more challenging, please welcome George Russell to the AVID jazz catalogue. Russell was a pianist, composer, arranger and music theorist whose most famous contribution to jazz was his theory of Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organisation. We are not even going to attempt to explain what that is! We think you would need a degree in music to understand most of the language of jazz theory! We like to listen to jazz music here at AVID, not theorise about. Instead we will point you towards our selection of Russell classics and to other artists who have come under the influence of George Russell and let you make up your own minds. The most famous album influenced by this theory is perhaps fittingly, one of the most brilliant, coolest and best selling jazz albums of all time, Miles Davis’s Kind Of Blue. Other Russell followers, some of whom you will discover on our four selections, are John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, Bill Evans, Paul Bley, Steve Swallow, Hal McKusick and Paul Motian.
