Great post. Made me look through my Jazz collection and rediscovered Time remembered. John McLaughlin plays Bill Evans.
Beautiful acoustic guitar recording with the Aighetta Quartet.
Randy Weston , Spirit of our ancestors , double disc set released on Verve in 1992 is another personal fave, big big brass sound. Might be a bit hard to track down though a single cd of excerpts was released a few years ago.
Also a big Miles Davis fan , Coltrane, Herbie Hancock; especially headhunters.
Also partial to New Orleans flavour, dirty dozen brass band, John Cleary , Dr John and Professor Longhair.

What a enjoyable read.

As always some artists familiar with ,some not.
I love reading & watching documentaries about jazz, very selective with my personal favs.

John Coltrane : A Love Supreme & Live At Birdland.
Miles Davis interpretation of Gershwins Porgy & Bess.

Lately i enjoy listening to hip hop with jazz samples, it gives a new life to jazz records.
If any one is coming from reggae & new to this music don't forget to check out the whole Jamaican Jazz scene from the likes of Ernest Ranglin to Monty Alexander [his intros to Marley classics are wonderful].

I was watching a documentary about Sun Ra, yes kinda far out, if i listen to him i must wear a tin foil hat from now on :)
Yes jazz satisfies my soul just like reggae, it can be heavy & deep or light as a feather.
