at the moment I am mostly listening to

Yusef Lateef's Detroit
Alice Coltrane's Transcendence and Journeys in Satchidananda
and the Ramsey Lewis Trio's Upendo Ni Pamoja

& my favourite stand along tracks at this point in time are Maynard Ferguson's version of Sunny and Bobby Hutcherson's Goin' Down South

All the albums by Miles Davis' second great quintet, with Tony Williams, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock.

Sorcerer, Nefertiti, ESP, Filles De Killamanjaro, Miles Smiles...

Just the way all those albums helped bring about the birth of jazz fusion always fascinates me.
And with a line-up like that, how can they not be some of the best jazz albums ever?

Pharoah Sanders-Thembi
there's some screetching shit on this i don't like but just on the strength of astral travelling alone this is one of my favourites. that's one song \i'll never sample, just out of respect. I take it he was the first to record this, I know LLSmith was on the album too but did a separate version..?

Nat Adderley - Work Song
Kenny Burrell - Midnight Blue
Cassandra Wilson & Jacky Terrasson - Rendezvous

Robert Glasper's great. He actually performed near me and I missed out...
My favorite track by him is "Jelly's Da Beener".

Edit: Oh, also... The drummer on his albums, Chris "Daddy" Dave, is insane.

I know exactly how you feel! He performed in SF w/ Bilal for FREE! I couldn't go since it was a school night, but man, I'm really hoping he comes back to SF fast.
