Kind of Blue is believed to be the best selling Jazz album ever. Many consider it to be the DEFINITIVE jazz album.

Another album you should try and listen to is Dave Brubeck’s Time Out. Don’t have the entire album but a particular piece “Take Five” is one of the best pieces I have ever heard.

Pandit ko kabi to life main sunaya tha. Pandit khush ho gaya tha sunke… 🙂

Abey Dhar,

These albums are all amazing. When do I get them from you??? 😦 I have Giant Steps, Louis Armstrong and an mp3 of Take Five. All are superb! When, when, when… or is it going to be how, how, how???? I’m salivating for the rest now.

I will be coming to Bangalore sometime in the near future. You can enjoy all the albums.
