Haha very true! It is foolish to say the least to try and pick his best. He tears it up from his Sonny Rollins recordings to his very last recordings! Amazing.

Bball, you're right, to say that one is the best is a bit crazy. Theres just too many to choose from. All his stuff with Coltrane is incredible. 'Coltrane Plays the Blues', 'Crescent', 'Ballads' theres simply too many. 'Unity' just happens to be one of my favourites. Monks Dream is Elvin heaven.
