Jazz bgillesp (Week 10)

Here we go with another week of our jazz-athon. There have been lots of great discoveries for all of us so far, so I hope my picks will help that continue. My “theme” if you could call it that, is picking lesser known albums from well-known names. More on that below. Enjoy!
1Sonny Rollins
Our Man in Jazz

Most may know Rollins for his Saxophone Colossus or perhaps his work with other artists; however, I would like to argue there is no greater moment in his repertoire than on this album, specifically during the long fiery solo on Oleo. The low average rating for this album on Sput is a crime, so hopefully y’all will help me fix that.
2Art Blakey
The Big Beat

Many may know the name Art Blakey to be primarily associated with the classic Moanin, yet so much of his work is at that same high level that deserves equal recognition.
3Charles Mingus
Me Myself An Eye

Bonus Pick: A very late, but still wild release from Mingus in which he directs and leads, but does not play himself.
