    I agree with Kind of Blue, but at this point I *almost* don't need the record to listen to it! I can pretty much almost "play it in my head".

    I'm sure I'd need some Joe Pass....but how could I possibly pick just one record.

    I'll need a B3 record, but who? Shirley Scott? Jack McDuff? Charles Earland? Lonnie Smith? Jimmy Smith? Jimmy McGriff?

    Bird....Diz....Monk....They need to come along for the trip. Oscar Peterson, too. Can Art Tatum come?

    Ella or Sassy? Don't force me to pick!

    I think I need to opt out of this thread.

    oh....I forgot about McCoy Tyner. Add him to my post, above. And while you're at it, add some Ahmad Jamal.

    I can't do this. Sorry.

    1) Kenny G
    2) Kenny G Live
    3) Kenny G, The Greatest Holiday Classics

    I figure that after a few months on a desert island I’m going to want to smash something.

    For me it would be:

    Kind of Blue - Miles Davis (obviously)

    The Guitar Artistry of Hank Garland - Hank Garland (A forgotten masterpiece!)

    Johnny Smith (the verve one with the Gibson Johnny Smith on the cover) - Johnny Smith

    Howard Roberts --- H.R. Is a Dirty Guitar Player
    Herbie Hancock --- Man Child
    John Scofield --- Scofield A Go Go

    After typing that up, I realize Man Child should be first. But I get to bring all three...right. ;^)

    My worst fear....being stuck on a deserted island with nothing but three jazz albums to listen to.
