Kind of Blue

This was the first Jazz CD I ever owned.  I currently have over 200 Jazz CDs and Kind of Blue is still #1 on my list.

What are your favs?


I don't know much about jazz, so these recommendations are especially helpful.  My wife and I are looking forward to listening to everything listed above.  Thanks very much.

Bill Evans Sunday at the Village Vanguard and Waltz for Debby. You can’t not love it. I’m guaranteeing Bill Evans.

What a good place you’re in. You heard something good and you want more of it. Late ’50s early 60’s Jazz recordings, this my friend, is a bottomless pit of good stuff.

Especially in the ‘45-‘75 chronological range, there is an enormous amount.
Duke Ellington, Art Tatum, Mary Lou Williams, Coleman Hawkins, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins, Charles Mingus, Max Roach, Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, Cecil Taylor, Sun Ra, Archie Shepp, Donald Byrd, Andrew Hill, Pharoah Sanders, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Hank Mobley, Eric Dolphy, Art Blakely, Roland Kirk, Sonny Sharrock, Don Cherry, Albert Ayler, Sadao Watanabe.

I like all kinds,of musical Jazz,just hate that one note ,crazy play whatever you can makes no scents.
