    I assume you are referring to Jazz albums.

    1/ Borderline - Mel Powell, Paul Quinichette and Bobby Donaldson
    2/ Django - MJQ
    3/ For Django - Joe Pass
    4/ The Incredible Guitar of Wes Montgomery
    5/ This is Jazz - Woody Herman

    Ask me again in a week and it would probably be a different line up!
    Cheers MIKE.

    I know of one who likes rock and roll music. Don't forget
    Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon."

    hi judy, darkside of the moon is one of the best rock albums ever, but in my opinion the wall is the greatest rock album of all time. comfortably numb is the best rock song ever written. i also think roger waters is a genius of rock music. my first love is jazz, but i also like good rock. by the way welcome. gord

    This is one I would really like to join in on, but like the Desert Island thread I am having trouble choosing only five. Will try harder.
