    All I can think of is the immortal words of Bud Bundy;
    "Yum, yum give me some!"

    Are you sure that wasn't TED Bundy?

    I love Hardenberger's playing. I think he has the best interpretations of these concertos. The first time I heard that album, it was as if I had never heard the Haydn or the Hummel before.

    I really need to listen to more albums...

    But Porgy & Bess featuring Miles Davis is really awesome!

    I have the Whipped Cream & Other Delights album by the Tijuana Brass... that is, I have all the exact same songs, except the album is called "Classics Vol. 1" on my iPod. Some are cool, and some really get on my nerves.

    It changes constantly but currently and not in any order:

    Maurice Andre-Haydn/Hummel
    Word Of Mouth Big Band-Twins 1/Twins 2
    Miles-Kind of Blue
    Roy Hargrove-With The Great Tenors
    Wynton Marsalis-Black Codes From The Underground OR Standard Time Vol 1

    Long time scavenger, first time poster (by the way, I blame you guys for my vintage horn addiction). Kind of Blue is the obvious choice and has already been mentioned more than once, but I would be remiss to exclude Best of the Capitol/Blue Note Years. Listen to that album alone on the dock by some largish body of water and just see if it doesn't change your life, I dare you.

    Miles: Kind of Blue, Porgy and Bess, Miles Ahead, Sketches of Spain, Live at the Black Hawk (Friday night, well Saturday night too actually)

    Lee: Blue Trane, Sidewinder

    Diz: Gillespiana, Dizzy y Machito

    Wynton: I have a version of the "illegal" CD that I really like...

    Maurice Andre: all of his stuff with Karl Richter. The incredible W.A. Mozart concerto in C that is usually played on the flute or oboe (K 315 I believe). Although Maurice's baroque music is plenty enough to hear the quality of his playing, the articulation he achieves on the picc in that Mozart concerto in C is out of this world. I have never heard anything comparable. The Molter concertos, and the trumpet and organ CDs too...

    Hardenberger: Telemann concertos, Haydn, Hummel

    List non exhaustive...
