Default Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

Gvd covered a ton of great ones. That's a huge, excellent list that should keep you busy for a while.

If you love Herbie, the one I'd add is Maiden Voyage. Probably my favorite Herbie record and it features the title track that made Herbie famous as a composer and which he considers his finest piece of writing. It also has the sublime Dolphin Dance, probably my favorite Herbie composition.

And Tony Williams eats all the material alive. It's just an incredibly swinging, tasteful and inspired performance by young Tillmon throughout. One of his finest recordings, imo, and the magical Blue Note sound is on full display.
