100 Essential Jazz Albums

David Remnick of The New Yorker has compiled a list of the 100 Essential Jazz Albums, featured in the online edition of the mag. It’s purpose is “more as a guide for the uninitiated than as a source of quarreling for the collector.”

For anyone looking to get into jazz, I suggest starting your trip with Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue and using this list as a roadmap. (For a look into Kind of Blue‘s genius, check out this post.)
