  1. Footprints by Pat Martino ·
    If you don't "know" Martino, you are missing out. This is a great way to familiarize yourself with a master. Sometimes he may seem a little cold and analytical, but at his best he just burns...

  2. The Magic Band II by Howard Roberts ·
    Man, it's great to hear this great player stretch out a little bit. His albums tend to have very tasty but very short solos- dig his solos on these tunes!

  3. A Go Go by John Scofield ·
    Maybe I am a bit biased, but his choice of a backup band leaves much to be desired. Scofield is so much better doing his own thing- I am not sure why he is kinda coasting and retreading here.

  4. Hearin' The Changes-Dealing With Unknown Tunes By Ear by Jerry Coker ·
    If you are a jazz major, or thinking about being one, if you want to play jazz or understand it better, this is a great guide. it outlines common jazz progressions, gives them names and helps you understand how to apply this analysis.

  5. New Real Book by Chuck Sher ·
    The only problem with fake books is that tune you want is always in a different book. The Chuck Sher books are highly accurate in both chords and melodies, a lot of work has gone into these. Don't waste your time (and dishonor the original artis...(more)

  7. Pro Co Rat ·
    Indispensible part of my rig. I would definitely replace it if I had to.

  9. See The Light by Jeff Healey ·
    This album holds up remarkably well- although it is a bit dated sounding, the playing is phenomenal. I would say this is the best Jeff Healy I have ever heard- his sound is good and his playing is intense.

  10. The Black Album by Metallica ·
    This album to me marks another Metallica transition- although this is a pretty good album, it is downhill from here. The songs here display enough attitude and anger to fit into the MEtallica catalog, but the production is a lot "glossier" and d...(more)

  12. Master Of Puppets by Metallica ·
    This is the epitome of Metallica- their heaviest and most effective album. Great riffage, great solos. If you only own 1 metallica album, this should be it.
