Two other saxmen I can recommend are:
- Wayne Shorter with albums like...



pretty dense stuff for beginning a jazz collection, same with ornette coleman, mccoy tyner & keith jarrett

maybe some shorter on early weather report or with the miles davis quintet
coltrane plays the blues, or coltrane/dolphy that dynamic duo
also try roland kirk, inflated tear
mingus by joni mitchell
lenny breau, live at georges
must have: kind of blue

Glad to see some Raahsan Roland Kirk in the suggestions.

Try John Coltrane - Soultrane for a great starting place.
Also, even though it is a little middle-of-the-road for Jazz, his My Favorite Things is a good place to start.

Now let's get some Eddie Harris on the list, like That Is Why I'm Overweight, a great album with a hilarious title track.

Of course, right now I am listening to Louis Armstrong's What A Wonderful World CD.

I'm not a jazz aficionado but it's my preferred listening at night when I go to bed. There's a couple of jazz shows on community radio stations where I live that play some pretty nice (and varied) stuff.

"Miles & Coltrane". The album features the immortal "Straight, No Chaser".

I have been buying a lot of Larry Coryell recently. My favourite is still Coryell from 1969 I believe. I have also added a few Chuck Mangione to my collection including Feels so Good. Try Hubert Laws Crying Song, anything by Grover Washington and Instant Death from Eddie Harris.

anyone who digs Trane should check out the great saxophonist Robert Stewart...I would, but don't have the green. Maybe later.
