My favorite jazz albums (solo-artist-named) (1955-1965

 I listen to a lot of jazz. I'm very indiscriminate hence this list has all types from bebop to free jazz. More serious or more learned jazz fans can probably generate a list for each genre of jazz, but I'm not at that level yet. So this is it for now.  I'll pick one album from an artist and I'm trying to get the ones a particular artist is credited with (ses, I know they're all over each others records). The Jazz at Massey Hall or Getz/Gilberto  will be on another list but I'll include 'X and a quartet'. There's a logic to it, trust me . In no particular order:

1. John Coltrane - A Love Supreme -1964- Modal jazz/Post-Bop



2. Miles Davis - Kind of Blue- 1959- Modal Jazz
