I nearly put The Prisoner in, but I cut it (along with a few others) because I thought I was in danger of including his whole discography hahaha. I flipped a coin between Crossings and Sextant too Smile

Yes! So much so - probably another of Davis' greatest skills - supporting superb sidemen who become (already are) superb leaders

Empyrean Isles because it's a neat (almost) four-genre post bop workout with an ace line-up

Herbie Hancock − Piano
Freddie Hubbard − Cornet
Ron Carter − Bass
Tony Williams − drums


And includes at least one classic Hancock tune, on top of which has an excellent mix of stellar solos and impressive ensemble playing. One of my earliest Hancock purchases, and probably earliest Jazz purchases too.
