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'?

Martin Taylor, the Scottish acoustic / electric guitarist has some wonderful recordings on Linn including one w/famed jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli. Martin Taylor has a series of guitar oriented lps on his own label. Also, Antonio Forcione is a brilliant Italian acoustic guitarist who has recorded on Naim.
Take a look at this thread:


I have compiled quite a list out of it that I have been chipping away at, but frankly I have a few hundred to go yet before I catch up with Elizabeth. However I doubt she'll stop any time soon, so that may be a never never plan, lol. Independant of that, Dave Brubeck- Time Out is a must have, and I particularly enjoy the Horace Silver Bluenote rereleases - any and all of them, he's my favorite artist.

One of my favorite live albums is Louis Bellson Live at Concord.
