My Current Jazz collection, what do I listen to next?

I didn't expect that 7 months after first listening to A Kind Of Blue I'd still only have 20 Jazz albums. But with Hip-Hop I often just listen to a new album and forget about it for a long time, with jazz I play the shit out of every album before even considering downloading a new one.

try some Thelonious Monk

i like Genius of Modern Music (its a compilation of works from 1947 - 1952 in 2 volumes), but i still have yet to get into all his stuff. Straight, No Chaser is also very good

if you want more Coltrane, check out Meditations, Ascention, Interstellar Space and Lush Life

Herbie Hancocks Dis is Da Drum is really dope, its almost a hip hop album, in fact there is an emcee on one track. Fat Alberts Rotunda is another good listen

Coleman Hawkins is another really good jazz artist. Desifinado (sp?) is a solid joint

i got all Miles's album between 1957 and 1975 (on Columbia), plus a few live albums and they are all very worthy to get imo. not a single one of those 30 Miles's albums i got are even remotely mediocre or anything like that. i love fusion, jazz/funk/rock/psychaelic shit mixed together and improvised and jammed which is what Miles did between 1969 and 1975 so if that's your type of shit, then you will love all those albums.

all Weather Report albums between 1971 to 1977 are dope, some are better than others but worth checking. also Joe Zawinul's "Zawinul" and "Rise & Fall of 3rd Stream" albums are worth checking for sure, Wayne Shorter's "Super Nova", "Speak No Evil" and others too.

Herbie Hancock is another favorite of mine, check out "Maiden Voyage", "Empyrean Isles", "Mwandishi", "Crossings", "Sextant", "Headhunters" and "Thrust" to begin with. also Headhunters (the group) album "Survival Of The Fittest" are funky.

Pianist McCoy Tyners album "Extensions" are absolutely incredible - it features Wayne Shorter and Gary Bartz doubling on saxes, Ron Carter on bass, Elvin Jones on drums and Alice Coltrane on harp. amazing album, check it out!

Keith Jarrett might be the best pianist that ever lived imo, at least improvisitional. start with "The Köln Concert" and "Changeless" (w. Jack DeJohnette & Gary Burton).

Chick Corea is also a good pianist, check out the album "The Complete Is Sessions" and "Hymn Of The 7th Galaxy" by Return Of Forever an Corea for one. Stanley Clark was in the group too, check out his LP "School Daze".

John Coltrane of course, "A Love Supreme", "Meditations", "Blue Train", "Ballads", etc, etc, etc,.

man there's so much great jazz that the best way is to discover it by yourself. for example if you listen to a Miles Davis album you like and check out who's on the record then you check out the greatest works of those side artists albums as leaders. Thelonious Monk, Donald Byrd, Dexter Gordon, George Benson, Art Blakey, Milt Jackson, Tony Williams, Freddie Hubbard, the list just goes on and on.. but it's great discovering new albums for sure and there's so much good jazz that once you get a love for it the search is on for the rest of your life.

gotta mention John McLaughlin too though, his debut "Extrapoalition", his work with Miles of course, he did two albums with Tony Williams that's ill, of course his band Mahavishnu Orchestra (especially the LPs with the first line-up of the band, with Billy Cobham on drums) and i just picked up an LP copy of "Love Devotion Surrender"; his collabo with Carlos Santana. great shit

Check out
George Benson - Breezin.

It's one of the most commercial jazz records ever, and some of the smoothest music you've heard and plenty of great guitar jamming along with that. It goes great in the car.
