Maiden Voyage has to be one of my favorites. Really got me into Herbie Hancock. Some superb performances on the album as a whole.

Why does the writer stop in the Fifties?
Why are Lester Bowie, Woody Shaw, or
Bill Dixon not important ?

That's the trouble with only covering 5. What are your favorite pieces by the three you mentioned, Fred? I'm not too familiar with them.

Miles Davis is sublime. I never tire of "Kind Of Blue."

Cherokee has been on my iPod for a long time. I'm going to go listen to it again.

You can add Jon Faddis' mind-blowing trumpet solo at
the breakneck tempo on "Things to Come" fronting the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra on the "They Came to Swing" CD. Amazing!!
