61. Yusef Lateef – Eastern Sounds (1961)

Yusef LatiffThis album - Lateef´s most enduring and wonderful recording - celebrated the music of the east long before it was fashionable. The quartet featured the inimitable Lex Humphries on drums, Ernie Farrow on double bass and rabaab, Barry Harris on piano, with Lateef playing just about everything else.

62. Sonny Rollins - The Bridge (1962)

Rollins BridgeThis album was recorded following a three-year sabbatical. Accompanied by Jim Hall on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass and Ben Riley on drums, Rollins explores four standards and two fiery originals. The interplay between Rollins and Hall stands out, making this set a near-classic.

64. Stan Getz & Charlie Byrd – Jazz Samba (1962)

Stan Getz Byrd Jazz Samba 471681This album was the first Bossa nova album recorded by American musicians. Byrd's bubbling syncopations combine perfectly with Getz's warm and melodic inventiveness.

65. Charles Mingus – Blues & Roots (1959)

Charles Mingus Blue and Roots ristampa vinile lp2This album is about the black experience, particularly the blues, gospel, and old-time New Orleans jazz.

66. Bobby Hutcherson – Dialogue (1965)

Muhammidd powerThis album is one of the reasons that Idris Muhammad is regarded as the drumming king of groove. Featuring the talents of Bob James, Grover Washington Jr, Joe Beck, Randy Brecker and Ralph MacDonald, and the knife-edge slick production of Creed Taylor, this 1974 issue is a burning piece of deep, jazzy soul and grooved-out bliss.
