Rob, I think you and I have some very overlapped jazz collections.

Kind of a safe list based on older favourites. Most of my albums I haven't listened to in long time. No idea how I feel about lots of stuff I liked years and years ago. And I haven't really acquired new music either thanks to the lack of money or reluctancy of buying CDs these days. I very rarely bother to download anything either.

That's probably the noise album that has affected me the most. I bought it from the merch table right after his performance four years ago, that might have something to do with it.

I wouldn't list it though as I'm not very avid harsh noise / power electronics listener.

If you guys are into that classic era of American jazz (approx '55 to '67) I would really suggest listening to:

1: Wayne Shorter- Speak No Evil AND Night Dreamer AND Juju
2. Jackie McLean- Demon's Dance
3: Herbie Hancock- Maiden Voyage AND Empyrean Isles
4: Sam Rivers- Fuchsia Swing Song
5: Thelonious Monk/John Coltrane: Live at Carnegie Hall


AND for everyone here, if youre into Sonic Youth (I assume everyone?) then the electric period of Miles Davis is essential:

Thats albums like Live-Evil... Black Beauty... On The Corner... It's About That Time. Most people go for Bitches Brew and that has an amazing atmosphere, but I find the other albums are a bit more coherent.

notice I did not include and Grateful Dead albums, which is because not because they have not been one of the all time greatest bands, rather it is because they do not have very many good albums, their best music did not translate into albums but only LIVE recordings

also my list was MY ten all time albums..

if the list was to be readjusted for cultural/musical impact I would say

Chuck Berry "Chuck Berry Is on Top"
The Velvet Underground "Velvet Underground and Nico"
Rolling Stones "Sticky Fingers"
Grateful Dead "Anthem of the Sun"
Black Sabbath "Paranoid"
Pink Floyd "Dark Side of the Moon"
Bob Marley and the Wailers "Catch A Fire"
Crass "Feeding the 5000"
Nirvana "Nevermind"
Michael Jackson "Off the Wall"

ALSO if youre into the Miles first quintet (with Coltrane, Garland, Chambers, Jones) then get the album MILESTONES.. it's the natural progression of all the work that band had done plus Cannonball Adderley is in the group with Coltrane and they basically battle for the whole album.

I implore you to get 'John Coltrane Plays' (the album after 'A Love Supreme'). It's possible my favourite Trane, and is depressingly underloved. Seriously fantastic. At the very least, 'Song of Praise' would likely be my single favourite Trane track if I was forced to pick. Oh, and how do you not have the Monk/Coltrane at the Carnegie hall record?! That's beyond ace.

7. Robert Wyatt - Rock bottom
8. Gamelan Ensemble of STSI Denpasar - Music of the gamelan gong kebyar
9. Ornette Coleman - Free jazz
10. Paul Dolden - L'ivresse de la vitesse

Still, a list of 10 classical releases:
1. Claude Debussy - Préludes, vol. II (Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli)
2. Morton Feldman - Durations I-V / coptic light
3. Alfred Schnittke - Symphony #1
4. Charles Ives - Symphony #4
5. Luciano Berio - Orchestral works
6. Bela Bartok - Music for strings, percussions and celesta
7. Per Norgard - Seadrift
8. Samuel Feinberg - Piano sonatas ##1-12
9. Gérard Grisey - Taléa / Vortex temporum
10. Arnold Schoenberg / Anton Webern / Alban Berg - Neue Wiener Schule: die Streichquartette

aarrggh no room left for Boulez Messiaen Ruders Scelsi Nono Ligeti Janacek Saariaho and the others

10 all time favourites in no particular order:

Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation
Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein

The Stooges - Funhouse
The Dead C - Trapdoor Fucking Exit

It doesn't really mean all that much because I could easily make 10 of these.... including top 10's that aren't strictly dudes + Kim Gordon.

I started thinking about a classical 10 and I got so far as going 'there is no fucking way I'm picking just one Feldman piece' before I gave up. What recording of the Bartok do you have? Only I have a 1950s recording that's not the best.
