Most jazz is pointless, inane, masturbatory jive....but I like monk and mingus. My all-time favorite would be "a love supreme" by John Coltrane.

If you think you might like avant-garde jazz, try Bill Frisell. The following vid shows him playing Shenandoah which is from his 1999 album "Good Dog, Happy Man" ..

wow - great post, love this Frisell guy. You are right about rock classifications.

Theres too many great Jazz albums out there. But with Miles Davis in mind (being my most endured Jazz artist and all) I think this album deserves to be up there:

Man, the beats on this track really do great things for me:

Yeah, I know its mental shit that the Jazz 'purists' dont take seriously, but theres just something about the beats on that album that really do it for me. I'd much rather listen to On The Corner than say 'Kind Of Blue' anyday. I'm more a fan of his later stuff.

EDIT: Satchmo, have you heard this yet?
Great collaboration album by Jazz pianist Rein De Graff & the late saxophonist Bud Shank, who sadly died earlier this year.

I don't believe it is possible to pinpoint a Best Album but here is a contender: The Shape Of Jazz To Come by Ornette Coleman

One of the best jazz fusion songs was Byrdland (Weather Report and others) and another was Bali Run by Fourplay.
