    OK didn't realize you were talking about the 60s albums specifically. I was just thinking about what he recorded before the technology came about.

    That aside, I like to go for speakers when listening to Jazz. I guess it really comes down to the equipment you have and the quality of stereo mixing.

    Thanks for the tip @Deus! I love such boxes not only for the music but also for the liner notes. I still hope to find the Elvin Jones mosaic box as well. I do own the McCoy Tyner one.

    I have a couple of other (more simple) Max Roach boxes and some separate albums.

    Am I right in saying that these albums are covered by the box you are talking about? Please add or remove so that I can see which albums I miss at the moment.




    His work with Cllifford Brown and/or Sonny Rollins is at least as (or even more imo) essential:

    Brown:
    Rollins:

    Yeah, but what about Cubano Chant? Too much Latin? Not serious enough?
    I think the intro in the first version is very clever rhythmically.

    Anyways, that's some more avantgarde stuff I like, Tim Berne, New York school around John Zorn. I like this album:


    And, of course, Steve Coleman. I enjoy this album:


    If you're looking for more 'kind-of-coming-from-the-old-school', one of the most important drummers is missing in your drummers list: Jack DeJohnette. He's one of the greats, up there with Tony and Elvin.

    Some really incredible drumming from Elvin, especially at the end.

    If all goes well I'll go to a Jazz festival in July with McCoy Tyner, Wayne Shorter, Tomasz Stańko and Enrico Rava (on the same day)!

    Ok, I've never been to neither LA nor Denver. Mintzer is a real good 'lead player' and I would've liked to hear that clinic. But from my perspective, the Yellowjackets were always more Ferrante (piano) and Haslip (bass)'s band,
    C'mon they're awesome above here ^. Intricate composition, Ferrante being a hero, Will and Haslip (and Ferrante!) being cool with a hell of rhythms. :)

    Indeed. In fact, with SD it's absolutely essential to get some background info for pretty much everything. "When you put me on the Wolverine up to Annandale" - especially nowadays when the train Wolverine does not go to neither New York or Annandale, the song only gets more and more esoteric. :D
