Grtx,
Miles was just pure virtuoso...

I think I have every commercial CD Miles put out and I always look for bootlegs of concerts etc.

There was just something beautiful and unique when Miles played!

He always had the best guys playing with him too....

Look at some of the names over the years that started with Miles!

Look at the liner notes of "Bitches Brew"....
Awesome album....awesome talent in there too!
Fusion at it's roots and heavy at times...

Great in it's own right that album!

Plenty of Miles groupies here...I'll agree that 'Kind of Blue' is a "must have" classic, but greatest of all time? That's a toughie. How 'bout these:

Charles Mingus- 'Mingus Plays Piano', 'Let My Children Hear Music', 'Ah-Um', Three or Four Shades of Blue' or 'Right Now:Live at the Jazz Workshop'

John Coltrane- 'Lush Life', 'Blue Train'

The Modern Jazz Quartet- 'Reunion at Budokan', 'The Modern Jazz Quartet - Dec.'52', 'The MJQ at the Opera House - Oct.'57: Includes The Historic Donaueschingen Concert 10/20/57'

Ornette Coleman- 'The Shape of Things to Come', 'Ornette on Tenor', 'Beauty is a Rare Thing'

Thelonius Monk- 'Monk Alone - "The Complete Columbia Solo Piano Recordings 1962-1968"', 'Live At The Jazz Workshop', 'Always Know'

More incredible jazz out there than one could ever imagine...

...Kind of Blue, yeah, I hear ya., but it takes several 'listenings' to 'get it''..
Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet, however, blew me away the first time I heard it!!

I can't argue with "Kind of Blue" and "A Love Supreme".

I thought of Kind Of Blue as soon as I saw the title of this thread. I can't say there's a better jazz CD.

I love the beginning of So What...

Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Miles was a protean artist. I can't say that I love all of his recordings. But this record is so different, fresh, beatiful. Its one of the few records that you can hear the beauty of math and improvisation together. I never tire of it. I'm a big fan of John Coltrane as well but Kind of Blue does it for me.

No one has mentioned Money Jungle by Ellington, Mingus and Roach. If I could only have one jazz album in the world it would be that one.

Good thing I can have as many as I want!

Others high on my list include:
  • Miles Davis: Kind of Blue, Sketches of Spain and Bitches Brew
  • John Coltrane: Blue Train and Lush Life
  • Ahmad Jamal: Poinciana
  • Herbie Hancock: Head Hunters and Maiden Voyage
  • Charles Mingus: Mingus Ah Um
  • Thelonius Monk: Monk's Dream
  • Dave Brubek: Time Out
  • Duke Ellington: Live at Newport
  • Jim Hall: Concierto
  • Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto: Getz and Gilberto

Actually, recently I've been listening to a lot of Medeski Martin and Wood (anything) Charlie Hunter's "Bing Bing Bing" and the Ginger Baker Trio (with Bill Frisell and Charlie Hayden).

But Money Jungle is still in there at least once or twice a week...
