Desert Island recordings

I'm going to make this a sticky.  In the widest sense, must be a jazz recording.  No other limitations.   You can always add some.
Miles -Kind of Blue of course
Cannonball Adderly-Somethin' Else
Mingus Ah Um
Getz/Gilberto

Hopefully, it would be a big island, and with a stereo! 

Miles in Europe
Sinatra's Only The Lonely (figure I'm gonna be pretty lonely, too)
Point of Departure- Andrew Hill
Scales- Manfred Schoof Quintet (from ECM, love what European players were inventing in the 70's)
Live Sides- The Jazz Crusaders in the 60's
Free For All- Blakey (another Blue Note)
and a whole bunch more . .

There's so many good recordings in this list. Great music for most and great sound for some. But I find myself over exposed and burnt on some of these listings. I mean how many times can you hear Getz/Gilberto before blowing chunks?

Ror that reason I'll list some that I don't tire of easily and can keep coming back to over and over again.

Like:

Pat Metheny Group - The Way Up
Pat Metheny - Secret Story

(others to be added later when I have time)

Not the only one but definitely on my list:

Michel Camilo "One More Once"  His rippin latin-tinged trio music arranged for equally rippin big-band.

VSOP "The Quintet"  (or The Quintet "VSOP")  Herbie, Ron, Tony, Wayne and Freddie, live and, yeah, rippin.

Sorry that's two.
