We love jazz and realize that our collection is woefully incomplete. We were glad to run across this list of "The 100 Greatest Jazz Albums of All Time" to give us an idea of what we still need to buy. It looks like there were a lot of criticisms of the list by the comments but that is probably the nature of any such subjective list. We started listening to some of the artists and ended up buying the iTunes Essentials mix Jazz Chillouts "Basic Cuts" with artists like Charles Mingus and the Oscar Peterson Trio. It's not that we don't like hot jazz, we are just in a chill mood this week. Let us know what jazz you think is "essential".
