Thanks, I'll check him out now.

I've been listening to Sonny Rollins, Bird, Coltrane, and Miles all night.

Nothing like a night with some of the greats.

Can anyone recommend any Ella Fitzgerald stuff?

It's hard to top Kind of Blue and A Love Supreme, isn't it?

If you don't mind something more frenetic, I often enjoy Inner Mounting Flame or Birds of Fire from Mahavishnu Orchestra....

Also, if you want to mix some country blues into your piano jazz, Mose Allison is solid.

Have fun.....a nice way to spend the evening.

OK, I feel like an idiot. Allison has a huge body of work.

What do you feel is his best?

Hey I'm discovering old artists all of the time..........there is so much out there!

I don't know his individual albums all that well, but his first few made an impact on many of the British invasion acts. I own Greatest Hits and The Best of......There is actually little overlap and it is pretty comprehensive. The sound and style my get a little redundant after awhile, but he has a great voice and some clever lyrics, etc. You might have to be in the mood for it..

You've got to have some Lee Morgan in your collection. For starters pick up either Sidewinder or his Blue Note Best Of. Lee is also on a bunch of other artists' Blue Note albums in the 60s.

Sinatra and Basie put out two great ones in the early 60s that were definitely in the swing side of jazz, if you are a Frank fan at all.

Sure, I like some Frank.

I've never heard of Lee before, so thank you for the post.

Right now I'm listening to an hour long Charles Mingus show, but I'll check him out after that.

I love the time we live in. You can find any artist you want on the web now, and you can give them a chance.

Everything is out there now.

I'm a fan of the West Coast Cool Jazz scene: Chet Baker, Art Pepper, Gerry Mulligan, etc. Probably have more Chet Baker CDs in my collection than any other artist (with the possible exception of Willie Nelson).

Chet could be pretty uneven from record to record. "In Paris: The Complete 1955-56 Barclay Sessions" is great. So is "The Best of Chet Baker Sings." (Chet was a trumpet player who one day decided he could sing, too. Turns out he was pretty good.) "The Last Great Concert" is harrowing but amazing. It's 2 CDs of Chet's final recordings, half with a small ensemble and half with an orchestra, done before a live audience for a German radio show. He wasn't able to rehearse with either group because security thought he was a bum trying to get into the building. By then his voice was just a raspy whisper, but his trumpet playing was still spot-on.

As far as Art Pepper is concerned, "The Complete Village Vanguard Sessions" is a classic. For Gerry Mulligan, there's "The Complete Pacific Jazz Recordings of the Gerry Mulligan Quartet with Chet Baker."

Circling back to Mose Allison, all of his early stuff is just incredible. "Greatest Hits" on Prestige and "The Best of Mose Allison" on Atlantic have both been on heavy rotation in my truck for many years. And, unlike most of the guys from that era, Mose is still alive and touring. Not to be missed.

Saw Mose Allison play a few years ago.

It's almost a cliche now to list Mile's Kind of Blue but that is only because it is so essential that it ends up pretty much on every must hear jazz list anyway.

I am a huge fan of the Mahavishnu Orchestra as well so I will happily second them.

And just to give you one not mentioned yet:

Wes Montgomery-Smokin at the Half Note

anything by Joe Pass - intercontinental

Wes Montgomery is always amazing as well but he is more 60's - full house is a great album.

John Coltrane ~ Live at Birdland and Crescent
Freddie Hubbard ~ Straight Life
Duke Ellington and John Coltrane ~ Duke Ellington and John Coltrane
