Comece a sua coleção de jazz!

Adquiri recentemente o The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings, em sua 9ª edição. Como o próprio nome diz, trata-se de um guia com (não devem ser) Penguim 9ª ediçãotodas as gravações de jazz disponíveis em CD, pelo menos no mercado europeu e americano. São pelo menos 14.000 CDs abordados na análise de seus autores, Richard Cook e Brian Morton.

Não é exatamente um livro para ser lido de cabo a rabo como um romance, mesmo porque são 1.646 páginas, mas é uma ótima fonte de consulta. Além de curtas biografias do artista principal de cada CD, traz comentários sobre os melhores álbuns, além de destacar os 200 que eles consideram essenciais para uma boa coleção de jazz (Core Collection). Os autores deixam bem claro os critérios pelos quais os CDs foram escolhidos para figurarem nesse top 200, mas listas são sempre polêmicas.

Mas, polêmicas à parte, aproveitei que estou em férias e compilei a lista para dividir com os amigos musicólatras. Claro está que ninguém, salvo colecionadores compulsivos, vai sair comprando os 200 CDs, mas trata-se de uma boa referência caso você esteja procurando aumentar a sua coleção. Eu, por exemplo, não perdi meu tempo avaliando se tal CD deveria estar ou não na lista. Tratei de verificar os que eu já tinha (11) e classificar os demais com *** para orientar as minhas próxima aquisições. Bom, a lista está aí, use-a como quiser:

Se você se deu ao trabalho de contar, já percebeu que tem um pouco menos de 200 CDs nessa lista, mas é que alguns álbuns têm versões duplas – bom, é possível também que eu tenha pulado alguma página Alegre durante a compliação, lamento se for esse o caso.

Bom final de semana e boa sorte na coleção!
