Default Best Jazz Double Albums?

So what do you guys think are the best double jazz albums? I actually don't know that many which is why I'm making this thread. Are Miles Davis' "Get Up With It" and "Big Fun" worth getting? (I know those are both two disc sets)

To judge from the Thelonious Monk compilation that I have, I imagine that your live double recommendation is an excellent listen, Psy-Fi. As for Satchmo`s Bitches Brew, this is an album that I`ve tried to get into, but I have never been able to play more than one side before looking for something less, I don`t know, cerebral perhaps? As I was about 19 when I last tried Bitches Brew, maybe I should give it another go...

Anyway, many thanks,SoundgardenRocks, because you`ve given me the perfect excuse to advertise
this old thread of mine :-
http://www.musicbanter.com/jazz-blue...-masekela.html

Home is Where The Music Is fits my jazz tastes perfectly; just a five-piece combo who put together a little touch of funky, a little bit of smooth, and a little intellectual musicianship too. This is such a well-blended performance that it is the only jazz double that I can happily play from start to finish in one sitting, and then have an urge to start right back at the beginning again.

To date, my thread has elicited zero response, so I`m hereby challenging anyone : do you dare break ranks with the MB jazz orthodoxy, and at least acknowledge that Hugh Masekela exists ?

Jazz At The Pawnshop is the first one that popped into my head.

Fantastic! if you like this style.
Feels like you are actually at a small jazz club for the evening.

Not every Satchmo is Louis Armstrong, zevokes; I was referring to the equally reknown MB poster:-

Not exactly a recommendation, but just to move this thread along, I thought I`d mention this album:-

The Sounds of Adventure by Les Baxter. It`s a double album, albeit a compilation of super-cheesy music, so doesn`t really belong here in such august company as Miles Davis, etc. Still, we come to MB to expand our musical tastes and Les Baxter`s name may be new to many of you. Perhaps you`d prefer to keep it that way ! In whichever case, here`s a taster -or warning- before you rush out and buy :-
