Tribute to JJ is the best. Not a big fan of Britches Brew, it's just a little bit too up itself. 

Kind of Blue comes in at number 2, and I don't really know the others well enough to rank them.

Nefertiti


Mine's pretty identical. I might swap the excellent Nefertiti for either Filles de Kilimanjaro or the hugely underappreciated Water Babies, though.

1. Round About Midnight
2. Kind Of Blue
3. Friday and Saturday Nights at the Blackhawk, Complete
4. Relaxin'
5. Birth of the Cool

Something like that. It's not a definitive list by any means though. As you can see I prefer the pure jazz era to fusion.

I own Kind of Blue and a disc called The Birth of Cool, but they kind of put me to sleep. I genuinely respect jazz, but I just don't get it. I've heard some of Bitches Brew and that was better, but is there an album a rock-based dude like me should pick up?

It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you viddy them on the screen.
