I think anything with Joe Morello or tony wiliams behind the kit will put you on the right track.

If you're talking about the performance on Kind of Blue, the drummer was Jimmy Cobb. My favorite Miles album. I really prefer Elvin behind the kit though. Fantastic brushwork. "It's like making a soufle" as he used to say.

My favorites for jazz are usually the Buddy Rich Big Band (Westside Story medley, just amazing!), Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, etc. I really dig the swing and the bebop greats. More laid back stuff I usually go for Miles Davis.

Agreed! Peace!
