I have to admit I'm excited to see so many peeps that dig on jazz.

Greatest American music ever.

Hard to narrow it down to 10, but here are 10 of my faves: (in no particular order)

Lenny Breau - the Velvet Touch Of Lenny Breau, Live
John Coltrane - My Favorite Things
Oscar Peterson - Nigerian Marketplace
John Scofield & Pat Metheny - I Can See Your House From Here
Michel Petrucciani - Pianism
Bill Evans - Waltz For Debby
Mulgrew Miller - Live At Yoshi's Vol. 1 & 2
Phil Woods - Warm Woods
Dizzy Gillespie - An Electrifing Evening With Dizzy Gillespie
Donald Harrison - Real Life Stories

Of course, I love the classics like "Kind Of Blue", "Time Out", "Giant Steps", etc., but I left 'em off because everyone mentions those right off the bat.

Throwing 2 cents of my own, this album has never failed to amaze:

Agree about Time Out, but list is missing Errol Garner, Mose Alison, Benny Goodman, Pat Metheney and a a few more who will come to mind once I post this.

Used to do the Jazz Show on KUHF/Houston, and got more than my fill on Miles and Herbie. Not my cup of tea...

There are non-jazz albums that are just as jazzy... Grateful Dead and Bob Wills come to mind... and is the King Cole combo After Midnight Sessions jazz? I'd like to think so.

Great to see somebody mention Bright Size Life and Jaco.  Bright Size Life is full of great guitar and bass.  It would be difficult to pick only one Metheny release to include on a list.  Listen to Bright Size Life and then The Way Up and you will see how far Metheny has taken jazz.

dlm8585: Bright Size Life


Yes.  Pat and Jaco, both at that point in their respective careers where they have attained mastery of their respective instruments as well as found their true voice.  I think Rejoicing is my favorite Metheny album, but BSL is the more important record.
