This is a great idea and very useful to programmers.  It brings to mind 
a similar quest of  mine.  I've long felt that 1957 was one of the most 
prolific and significant years for jazz albums.  With only a few 
notable exceptions, most of the major figures were still making records 
- Armstrong, Hawkins, Prez, Ellington, Coltrane, Dizzy, Miles, Mingus, 
Monk, Billie, Ella, Sarah, Carmen,  etc.

Does anyone know of a listing of jazz recordings by year?  I'd love to 
see a list for 1957!
