Top Albums Of 1965

Don't have many from '65, list will be tough!
10Sun Ra
The Magic City
9 Bill Evans
Trio '65
8 Hank Mobley
The Turnaround
7 Sun Ra
The Heliocentric Worlds of Sun Ra
6 Wayne Shorter
The All-Seeing Eye
5Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers

Another great output by Mr. Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. The only thing better than this album is the album cover. Look how tough Blakey looks!
4Albert Ayler
Spirits Rejoice

And you thought Spiritual Unity was noisy and out there? Well I guess this one doesn't exactly take it to a whole new level, but Ayler absolutely revels in his free jazz roots on this one.
3 Hank Mobley
A Slice of the Top

Right smack dab in the middle of a year dominated by noisy free jazz, we have arguably Mobley's best work. Great piece of hard bop here.
2John Coltrane

Considered putting Meditations here, but went with Ascension instead. Like Meditations, this one was very important...and very noisy. Maybe not quite as memorable as some of the stuff on Meditations.
1John Coltrane

Toss up between this and Ascension, I think I went with this because it was the first piece of free jazz I really came to appreciate. I wouldn't put it in my top 5 Coltrane albums, but it's still good and very influential. Very noisy. The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost might be the best track on the album.
