You can easily try anything I have in the top 15, you should like any of them.

Thanks Slava, I might check it out (though I'm not the biggest fan of pure improv/free).

Are the covers showing in my OP? I forgot RYM doesn't allow hotlinking, so they might not show up for you.

Yes, but a personal masterpiece and not an universal one.
4 stars is more obvious, in Amazon style it's I like it, in PA it's essential.
So I can like something without considering it essential to others
As I said I feel more comfortable with the Amazon rating because it's about my very personal impression, in PA I always start thinking is it really a masterpiece? or is it really essential? LOL
