Top Ten Best Jazz Albums

The Top Ten

1 The Look Of Love - Diana Krall
2 Back to Black - Amy Winehouse
3 Kind of Blue - Miles Davis

Madonna is not Jazz, Amy Whinehouse is the closest one, but she's more Soul than Jazz, and Diana Krall is a great Jazz singer, but her legacy and acclaim is not so big as Miles Davis one. He may be along Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and John Coltrane the definitive Jazz artist. Bitches Brew is the same of good, but not so influential. This may be the greatest album of the 50's, and one of the top 10 of all time. My favorite track on here is the elegant So What, the first track. Then, Freddie Freloader, a "fast track" (comparing it to the rest of the album). After that, the most known song, the melancholic Blue in Green. The All Blues track is in my opinion, the worst one, but stills good, and Flamenco Sketches is a big classic.

THIS IS THE ESSENTIAL JAZZ ALBUM! How is this not higher than... Madonna and Amy Winehouse? - EGBrett

It's not only the best jazz album, It's the best album of all time!

Inexplicably moving, ground breaking record, agreed the greatest record of all time, any genre.

4 I'm Breathless - Madonna

I'm Breathless is one of my favorite albums by Msdge. It's a very conceptual album, since the sound of all the tracks is very similar - all retro cabaret-jazz with an ironic twist.
Really original record!
Buy it please, you like it - Magnolia

It was great to see/hear Madonna's jazzy songs. She sounds perfect on this album. Hanky Panky is my favorite track -

5 Thunder - S.M.V.
6 Notes From The Village - Anat Cohen
7 Metamorphosis - Maysa
8 When I Look In Your Eyes - Diana Krall
9 Nothing But The Best - Frank Sinatra
10 Come Away With Me - Norah Jones

She is such a great singer. I Love her music. Lots of untapped music to come from her, I am sure of it. Wow I would buy her cd's anywhere anytime.
