Truly great starter list!!I'd add Miles Davis Birth of the Cool, as well as any of his Quintet sessions, (Relaxin', Steamin', Workin' and Cookin'). Chet Baker's "Chet", Charlie Parker Savoy Sessions, and Gerry Mulligan Quartet: Pleyel Concerts.And no respectable household should be without "Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim". In fact, I think I'll go listen to it now!
Thanks for all the helpful responses. I now have this bookmarked and I'm sure will keep me busy for awhile
GR,What seemed to work for me when I started expanding my jazz section was to keep a list on paper or on my phone of interesting artists and records, then rifle through the used record/cd bins. The stuff on the lists here will be tough to find in good condition used--they get snatched up quickly--but you may find other titles for a bargain that will give you a taste of the artist and may turn out to be some of your personal favorite records. You may also see some artists/records that you want to research here or on Discdogs or AllMusic. I have about a 10% hit rate--about 10% of the records I pick up on a lark turn out to be ones I love--but I enjoy at least 80% and it's fun.AC
