    @ Gord, Sounds like a plan with which I can go along quite easily; I'm sure included among your West Coast selections are the inimitable Dave Brubeck and Paul Desmond. Great choices, Gord!

    These days I almost exclusively listen to anything by McCoy Tyner that has been recorded beginning with the year 1980. Why you may ask? Well, to be brief, I feel that McCoy has reached such Olympian Heights with his artistry.

    I am in absolute agreement with CD re: Tyner and his artistry. Along with Coltrane--with whom he often played and produced some classic jazz--he is most definitely one of my all-time favorites and "go to" guys. I would also have to add Cannonball Adderly, Esbjorn Svensson, Monk and Hancock to that list.

    Laid back would best describe my preference at the moment. Love the combination of Brubeck and Desmond. Teagardens vocals as well as his playing. The best of EST such as Round Mdnight.

    My preference is for small groups without vocals. I particularly like piano, oboe and acoustic guitar. Among musicians Dave Brubeck, George Shearing, Andre Previn. Joe Pass Oscar Peterson, Miles Davis and Jusef Lateef come to mind immediately. I have a few recordings by a group called Traveling Light which feature a Jazz Tuba which is enjoyable.
