I've bought Miles' "Kind of Blue" in several formats over the years...Vinyl, cassette and CD. "So What" is my favorite track on it but the whole album is fantastic. One of the best-selling jazz albums of all time as well.
Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" is his Holy Grail, his masterpiece (along with the albums "My Favorite Things", "Giant Steps" "Ascension", "SoulTrane", "Blue Trane" and "Interstellar Space").

I adore A Love Supreme.

Elvin Jones' drumming is beautiful.

IMO Kind of Blue is one of the greatest albums of all time in any genre of music. The musicians Miles Davis has playing on this album is amazing. Also love the notes Robert Palmer wrote on the inside cover.

I have listened to both of these, especially Kind of Blue, countless times. I still get something new out of them with every listen.

And others to try are Trane's Live At Birdland, and also get The Heavyweight Collection box set which will cover his time at Columbia Records and The Classic Quartet - The Complete Impulse! Studio Recordings box set that will cover all the studio material from the great lineup of Coltrane, Jones, Garrison and Tyner while his was on Impulse Records.

For Miles I have been listening to Big Fun and the Complete Jack Johnson Sessions box set a lot lately. You can also get The Complete Columbia Recordings: Miles Davis & John Coltrane, that will cover Miles and Tranes time together on Columbia.

that Davis-Trane box set is awesome.
I'm more a fan of Miles pre - electric. The complete Concert (My Funny Valentine, 4 and more) and the Plugged Nickel are both essential recordings, imo.

I am not a fan of best of albums.

having said that > The Best of Herbie Hancock -Blue Note Years is a must listen.......it is his early years stuff.

the first 6 tracks are epic and the players are supreme.

Watermelon Man
Driftin'
Maiden Voyage
Dolphin Dance
Cantelope Island
One Finger Snap

Tony Willimas play drums, Ron Carter bass.........these are standards

If you like Be-Bop at all Art Blakey - Live at Birdland (2 volumes) and Jazz At Massey Hall (Parker, Gillespe) are musts.

A Love Supreme just brings tears to my eyes. It is truly a masterpiece from arguably the greatest saxophonist of all time. I love Coltrane in general but A Love Supreme just makes me weep. It took me many years to be able to appreciate art at such a high level, but it is truly an amazing one. Not too long ago they released a deluxe version of it with live cuts and alternate takes, although the original should stand as the great work that it is, it is nice to hear the other versions. As for Kind of Blue, well it is agreed upon almost universally as the greatest modern Jazz album and the most commercially available and received well by even the causal jazz listener, although that is not lowering its status as a great album. It was my first real segue way into jazz and really enriched my appreciation for the genre.

I dont know that i could have said this better. My thoughts exactly.

And for further listening I recommend the "live at the Village Vanguard" from Coltrane.

Also:

Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane at Carnegie hall

Charlie Parker

Red Garland

Johny Hartman

Wes Montgomery

Jimmy Smith

Mongo Santomaria

I just picked up the Kind of Blue 50th Anniversary box set with 2CDs, documentary DVD, blue vinyl copy and well written essays and beautifully packaged for only 55 Australian dollars (about US$40). A worthwhile investment!

V.S.O.P. The Quintet
Herbie, Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, Tony Williams.
Some have said they expected more from this high profile Mile's alumni band.
I think that the tunes from the '77 dates swing.

First jazz album I ever bought was Art Blakeys" Free for all" and the title says it all..I was immediately hooked..some of the fiercest and most powerful music i had ever heard and to this day still is.....I happen to like Coltranes Atlantic years more than the more famous quartet years but it is all fabulous..giant steps is my favorite album of his!
