Killer Jazz and Blues Records to Own

The Jazz Record Mart in Chicago lists the essential albums — or “Killers” — in any collection.

I’ve got 14 of the 45. And for some of the artists, like Frank Sinatra and Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker and Count Basie, and others, I’ve got other albums by them, so this gives me some good info on more of their stuff to own.

Click more to see the full list. The ones I have now are in green, orange means I have other work by that artist, purple means I don’t, but probably should.
