Hi,

I don't know much about jazz, but I just found out Woody & Jazz album from Manuel Fraga trio. I'm curious to know what era this jazz album relate to and what are other jazz albums similar to it.

I love the energy in this album and the fact that the musicians are limited to piano, bass and drum.

I would be more than happy to hear some of your suggestions and get to know more about that specific kind of jazz.

Thank you

Woody Allen is a big fan of Woody Herman's music, as well as swing and traditional jazz in general. I listened to this Manuel Fraga's recording in question, which I'd call 'small group swing'.

Hope this helps.

:) Ville
