Lots of great recommendations here. A few great jazz albums no one has mentioned are:

Herbie Hancock - Maiden Voyage (title track is a masterpiece)

Oliver Nelson - The Blues and the Abstract Truth (amazing compositions

George Russell - The Jazz Workshop (also amazing compositions)

Mahavishnu Orchestra - Birds of Fire (incredible jazz fusion / Indian music)

Shakti - Natural Elements (on the outskirts of jazz now but if you like electronic music you’ll love this, INSANE tabla beats from Zakir Hussein and some of the best instrumental playing ever from John McLoughlin and L Shankar)


Zakir Hussein is great, I love his stuff with Shivkumar Sharma.

Jazz just seems like instrumental wank to me.


and aphex twin, autechre et al are just electronic instrumental wank—but they don't even know how to play actual instruments nearly as well

 

I cant really imagine it. Sean on the keys/ backing composition and Rob on the Sax/solo's ? or other way round?

Fight the oppression and marginalization of the avant-garde, death to neoclassicism.

EricDolphy_MusicalProphet_500.jpg

 

Resonance Records is proud to announce the first official previously-unissued studio recordings of Eric Dolphy in over 30 years, including 85-minutes of never before released material. Musical Prophet: The Expanded 1963 New York Studio Sessions is being released in partnership with the Eric Dolphy Trust and the Alan Douglas Estate with remastered high-resolution monoaural audio transferred directly from the original tapes.

 

aptured after leaving Prestige/New Jazz Records, and just before recording the timeless classic Out to Lunch! album, Musical Prophet is a 3LP/3CD set that contains the under-appreciated masterpieces Conversations and Iron Man recorded in New York City on July 1 and 3, 1963. Originally produced by Alan Douglas — most well-known for his association with Jimi Hendrix, but who also produced classic jazz albums such as Money Jungle with Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Max Roach — the tapes had been stored in a suitcase with Dolphy’s personal belongings and given to Dolphy’s close friends Hale and Juanita Smith just before he embarked on his fateful European trip in 1964. Years later the contents of the suitcase were given to flutist/educator James Newton, who had developed a close relationship with his mentor Hale Smith and Hale’s wife Juanita in the late 1970s. Then in 2015, Newton connected with Zev Feldman at Resonance and they began working in conjunction with the Eric Dolphy Trust in Los Angeles on this definitive edition of Dolphy’s 1963 New York studio sessions. These tapes were recorded in mono, unlike the stereo versions that were used for the original studio albums and are the only known master sources in existence. [...]

I'm quite new to jazz music, recently tried to give Bitches Brew another listen and it finally clicked.

 

The good thing is I started listening to more fusion jazz. Herbie's Thrust was an awesome listening, and so is Romantic Warrior by Return To Forever. If some jazzheads over here had any suggestions of albums in that vein to check and further expand my horizons I'd be thankful !

all Miles from 69-74 is solid gold for me.  especially Big Fun, Get Up With It, Jack Johnson.  Just ride that wild miles wave and see where it takes you.  When you need a chillout listen to In A Silent Way. That record has infinite replayability for me.  And if you really like one of them (Silent Way is the one for me) most have hours of "complete sessions" to immerse yourself in.
