Top Albums Of 1966

Pet Sounds probably could have made this if it wasn't complete trash
10Cecil Taylor
Unit Structures

In the immortal words of Miles Davis: 'This mother fucker can't play shit'
9 Dave Brubeck
Time In
8Joe Henderson
Mode for Joe
7Wayne Shorter
Adam's Apple
6 Freddie Hubbard

Freddie keeps churning out solid albums in his strongest era.
5 Stan Getz
What the World Needs Now

I said before that I'm not a huge fan of most of Getz's stuff, which is true, but I'm a sucker for jazz covers of non jazz songs (I'm looking at you Brad Mehldau)
4 Sonny Rollins
East Broadway Rundown
3 Hank Mobley
Straight No Filter

Another classic Mobley release, I'm sure this one rivals 'A Slice of the Top' for some people as his best effort.
2 Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers
Hold On, I'm Comin'

This is such a cool album. Like I said, I'm a sucker for jazz covers of other established songs, and this is full of them. The cover of Secret Agent Man is so slick.
1 Frank Zappa
Freak Out!

Coltrane finally dethroned, Frank Zappa takes his place. This is a great piece of parody music that was still actually credible. And not only was it credible, it's absolutely brilliant. Despite that, this isn't in my top 10 Zappa albums, however, it's still great. Zappa does doo-wop better than those that typically play it.
