Eric Dolphy is my favorite of the group. I also hold Richard Davis in high esteem, though its partially just that I love him for playing on Astral Weeks.

Cannonball Adderley's Autumn Leaves is spectacular.

Hell yeah, Cannonball's solo is fantastic on that.

The more obscure Coltrane version is awesome too.

Probably a repost, but this really could be my favorite instrumental of any sort. Shame he never came up with the brilliance of this album on other albums. But this album is an awesomely awesome album.

I'm really enjoying Little Women's Throat as well as Lee Morgan's The Sidewinder. Two great albums from opposite worlds.

Some excellent African jazz funk I just found. I've only heard this song, but I found a download and I'm pretty excited to check the whole album.

the percussion solo on mays/metheny's "as falls wichita, so falls wichita falls" is blowing my mind. essential to listen with headphones on.
