1. Miles Davis- Kind Of Blue
Every musician should own this record
2. John Coltrane- Giant Steps
An improvisational masterpiece that set the standard to this day.
3. Return To Forever- Hymn Of The Seventh Galaxy.
Bill Connors on Guitar is the secret ingredient. The best electric fusion album of its time!
4. Weather Report - Black Market
Jaco and Alphonso Johnson on the same record. Need I say more?
5. Herbie Hancock- Thrust
The only thing better than this record was to see them live at the time. I did in 1974 and Herbie and company were 10 times better than the record.
