I begin with my favourite jazz musician of all time: John Coltrane, and to chose just one album is almost impossible. However, it has to be a recording with McCoy Tyner, The obvious choice would be A Love Supreme, but I’ve chosen My Favourite Things because you can hear his approach to standards.

For the same reason, I’ve chosen Herby Hancock’s The New  Standard.

Chic Corea’s output has been and continues to be varied  in genre but Acoustic Band  gives you an insight into his approach to standards like Autumn Leaves and So In Love.

Exactly the same goes for Keith Jarrett. His standards trio, for me, has never been bettered.

So here goes…
