The first jazz album that I bought was John Coltrane's Ascension. Brilliant album, I'd recommend it to any fans of free jazz, moderate or affluent. The first jazz album that I came to love was Masada's Alef, which I listened to for quite a while before expanding into other forms of jazz. This was pretty hard after listening to insanely planned improvisational klemzer jazz, but I grew to love more conventional forms of jazz afterwards.

Although I was listening to jazz before I bought my first jazz album, my very first that I actually "owned" was Herbie Hancock's Thrust. Still my favorite Hancock release. It's just so very, very funky. And look at the album cover!

I lost my jazz virginity when I bought this album, recorded in 1962:-



Was I some precocious geek trawling through obscure jazz artists ?
No; somewhat to my surprise, I just found this album in a record shop, shortly after my brother`s then girlfriend played it for us at her house.
Wherever she may be now, I still owe her a debt of thanks:

I can't recall the first one. It was probably something from John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Ornette Coleman or Sun Ra.

Must've been John Coltrane's "Lush Life"
