Dawn by Double Image (ECM).  A short lived group with such communication.  This one has the staying power for me like a Kind of Blue.  You can read about it online but obtaining a copy is a whole nuther proposition.  You could always come to my house.  It's both inventive and beautiful.  Near serene, even.  More than a quartet in the traditional sense, these guys are a ensemble with mesmerising interplay.

Hejira-  That the one with "Furry Sings the Blues"?  Her lyrics are positively you-are-there on that.  Some of her best painting poetry of a lot of her great painting poetry.  Listened to "Only the Lonely" two nights ago fine tuning my system.

I'd try to get some variety within the small set...
Miles- Sketches of Spain and Kinda Blue
Probably Oscar Peterson- O.P. plays Pretty
Jimmy Smith- Chicken Shack
Something by Ahmad Jamal
Manhattan Jazz Quintet
Some Sidney Bechet
A Buddy Rich / Gene Kruppa shootout
Getz/Gilberto
Maybe some Zoot Sims
Sinatra- Only the Lonely

Scratch Zoot to keep the list to 10

I hope y'all don't mind if I just lurk this thread. :green:
I have tons of jazz but favorites rotate too much to pick just some. I'd need them all, and then some.
So thank YOU for participating! Always on the look out for more.  :thumb:

Help!!

I wanted to hear Blossom Dearie's "Bye, Bye, Country Boy" this morning and can't find the CD.  I mean like I looked for it with a magnifying glass.  Everywhere!  Damn.  So, I go on Amazon and her album with this song is not featured.  I looked for 30 minutes :bawl:.  Help!  Please!  Jazzy guy, all ya'll, please.

Professor Bombard . . if you happen to be reading, I have lost your email address.  Must have deleted it accidently.  You got this album on your computer or something?  Please lemme know plus I can replace your address.  Thanks. 

Thanks, all.

Jim - not sure which album you're referring to, but that song can be found on the CD "Our Favorite Songs", available at Amazon

Many thanks, Danny.  Hardly a sweeter little lament exists. 

Later, and I ordered it.  It's on a "Best of  . . ." newer release.  That's bad boy system you have if I've never said so.
