Live at the Regal
I'm not much of a blues person, but I like this album. King plays flawlessly in what is widely regarded as one of the best live albums ever.
Loud, noisy, off the wall, its everything a work of free jazz strives to be, and Ayler nails it. I'm not a big free jazz fan, but I like a lot of Ayler's work, and this is no exception.
Fabulous piece of Modal Jazz, this might be my favourite of Shorter's.
Out to Lunch
Likely tied with Conversations for my second favourite Dolphy album, this one is probably his most Avant-Garde. 'Hat and Beard' is a phenomenal track. This is an essential work of Avant-Garde jazz.
A Love Supreme
Probably the best album of the 20th century, there's nothing I can say bad about this album. It's my favourite jazz album of all time.
