Jazz must have pressings???


Since this board is dominated by rock n' rollers, let's hear from a jazz oriented crowd.

Being a piano-guitar player my vinyl collection is heavy with those two instruments. I'm thinking of expanding my vinyl collection to balance it a bit.

So the ? is, what selections do you recommend that are absolutely 'must haves'?
