Mingus, Pithecanthropus Erectus? I love it because it feels like walking through a crowded city and also like humans learning to walk, at the same.

Mingus at Antibes is my favorite of his.

No singers?

No Louis Armstrong, Billy Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan?

I think I'd have to make a separate list just for vocal jazz. You know I love singers too, Bob. They deserve their very own list.

Jonathan, One of the greatest events of my life was visiting with you out there in Palo Alto, at I forget which apartment, yours or mine, and you lending me the Ella Fitzgerald Songbooks.
