Jazz Albums Every Man (and You’d Think, Woman) Would Want to Hear

People love to make lists and people love to read lists. Here is a survey of 30 essential jazz albums that every man should hear. The usual deserving candidates are here, like Kind Of Blue, A Love Supreme, Getz/Gilberto” and Ellington At Newport. But there are some recent entries. For Pat Metheny, The Way Up is an odd entry given his more jazz-steeped gems. It’s nice to see Oscar Peterson’s Night Train on a list at last. It was always my favorite of his vast output. Anyway, have fun with this.
