Really nice idea for a thread Chris,i have literally hundreds of Jazz recordings on my record shelves. Here's a few of my all time favourites. Milt Jackson,was the original vibraphone player

Classic ....  

Gotta be Love Supreme by Coltrane hands down. But, Song For My Father by Horrace Silver chokes me up everytime. And my days this live performance is the epitome of Jazz.

My days! That Herb Geller track is huge bruv! 

You can still pick up the record pretty cheaply these days, themroc ..there's a few up on Discogs at the moment..it's a great album and well worth picking up for the price.

Couldn't resist posting this 1969 monster track from British jazz legend John Surman. A fusion of hard bop, avant garde and Afro-Caribbean rhythms - classic!

One of the best to ever do it as far as I'm concerned.

Shorter is 84 years old now and still with us and probably the greatest living Jazz composer from the old school.

There's certainly not many of those guys left now ,mores the pity.

Another good one from the series. Could be debated if 

it's still a Jazz track in this remix.

I'm surprised no-one's posted this yet - The Art Ensemble of Chicago's "Theme de yoyo", featuring an all-star line-up of the avant garde and with the mighty bonus of soulstress Fontella Bass sounding like someone who was never, ever in need of rescuing. Legendary!

Uncompromising, and unapologetic. You can feel the sense of power that was in the air and time. Just awesome!!

Staying with the pianists, here's someone Miles Davis admired for his use of space. I remember Robbie Vincent championing this ... Ahmad Jamal from 1986:

However many records you own there are always so many more that you haven't heard of, one of the reasons I visit this forum. So many thanks to Themroc, I've loved that Idris Muhammad track for almost 30 years - but the only version of it I've heard was on the "Paul's Boutique" LP where the Beasties sampled it.

I've ordered Idris' LP this morning though. 😀

Anyhow, here's another one of my favourites... another one on Strata East, The Heath Brothers - Smilin Billy Suite.

 

Sadly I haven't got the original vinyl of this, but I have got the recent reissue which is real nice quality.

^^^^

That Heath Bros track is straight dope...also famously sampled by Nas & Q-Tip for 'One Love'. 

 

Buddy Rich and The Killer Force cooking it up nicely here.

Rich was possibly the most miserable,ungracious man in the entire history of Jazz but his talent was never,ever in doubt, fortunately.  

 

Shelly Mann,Willie Bobo,Louis Bellson and Paul Humphrey 'Supermellow' taken from 'The Drum Sessions' lp 1975.

Astounding tune Jimmy can't seem to find it on discogs tho. Any ideas how I can get a copy? I'm just glad that people are listening to each others tunes. Spent all last night working my way through this thread which ain't easy as most seem to be over 10 minutes long. While looking for the Heath Brothers I noticed that they worked with Pat Metheny! I had completely forgot about him and one of my favourite tracks by him, back in the day, was Off Ramp which seems to be unavailable on Youtub. The more you discover the less you realise you know. Keep diggin and livin brother.

Much maligned and underrated Mr Louis Armstrong and as dark a tune ever recorded. 

And

 

You can't beat early Louis Armstrong - the greatest jazz pioneer.
You can't beat his playing on this one:

Brilliant tune.
Here's another slightly more uptempo version which, I would think , features the same musicians:

Must admit to being partial to a bit of big band/dance band. This is one of my favourites - an evergreen tune recorded by countless artists. Tommy Dorsey does a great version. This though is the original version from 1929 by Rudy Vallee and his Connecticut Yankees...

Coxsone Dodd (Studio 1) was a huge Jazz fan. And this Count Ossie track, never released on 45, is a SCORCHER!
