    This is probably my favorite style of jazz. Big huge sound, interesting arangements lasting 8min+ building up to a huge climax, etc. "Earth" and "With All The Bells and Whistles" are probably my two favorite CDs of all time. Have listened to each several hundred times since they were released.

    I'm looking for some other bands/albums that are similar. What would you guys recommend?

    I like Bob's "State of the Art" album. Lots of standards like "Just Friends" and "Auld Lang Syne". Great arrangements and great playing.
