Herbie Hancock- Sextant: Kozmigroov. One of the most fucked up albums I own.
His best album, hands down. Pretty much every guy on this album also made albums as a leader with more or less the same personnel, often including Herbie. The best of these are:

Bennie Maupin - Jewel of the Lotus. A top 5 jazz album for me.

Eddie Henderson - Realization, Inside Out. These have, I think, the full Mwandishi band backing Henderson. They're available as a 2-on-1 CD. Absolutely killer. Henderson's third album, Sunburst, is also great.

Julian Priester - Love, Love. This has fewer Mwandishi guys, but it's still awesome.

Buster Williams - Pinnacle. The funkiest of the bunch, I'd say, but nowhere near, say, Headhunters.
Visigoth- Conqueror's Oath: I turned in my trooo metal card years ago, but I still dabble here and there. Good stuff.
I like these guys a lot, although I slightly prefer their demos, especially the second, to their albums. Jake's voice has changed since he lost weight.
