What are some of your favourite jazz albums that are of particular interest to blues players, especially us harp types?

I'm aware of the more go-to examples such as Miles and Cannonball Adderley, but was curious to see what other records might be given a shout.

Hope everyone's staying safe and well out there!

Steve Wonder began his career as a jazz harmonica player. Bela Fleck and the Flecktones worked with Howard Levy on harp.
I'm just an old gut player. Too deep into theory and I get lost quick!

In a previous band or two we've done Chicken Shack, instrumental with a lot of harp work in it.
