Only one album per artist (but solo artists may have their own too, so the Flying Burrito Bros and Gram Parsons each have their own entry).
Apology in advance: I simply do not know enough about jazz and blues to list any artists, although I am mindful of my debts to Miles Davis, Monk, and Coltrane, not to mention Robert Johnson, Howlin' Wolf, and John Lee Hooker (whom I have really gotten into recently due to fettstabilt - thanks man!).
Also, there is no solo Lou Reed on this list. The older I have grown, the less interested I have become in his solo work (except Berlin).
