This one since I witnessed the exitement of Miles´ comeback and here it is still in a really jazz context, without all those synthisizers and the more boring stuff that came later. 

I really like it, maybe it´s a bit rough but it´s live and it´s still "jazz"

For me, the 80's was junior high through the start of grad school, split roughly equally between Cleveland and Chicago. Started with appreciation for Kind of Blue, Time Out, Weather Report, Cannonball's Mercy, Mercy, Mercy (cassette dub in about 10th grade), high school stage band. Then the very deep CD dive into (among other things) the greatness of Blue Note (Rose Records!). Here are some of my favorites, focusing primarily on items that I discovered around the time of their release.

Joanne Brackeen - Live at Maybeck Recital Hall, Volume 1

Bobby McFerrin - Spontaneous Inventions  [Don't worry, being happy wasn't a requirement until the next BN release.]

Carmen McRae - Carmen Sings Monk

Pat Metheny - Still Life (Talking)   [Works very well played on a loop, especially when stuck inside with nasty winter weather outside.]

Roscoe Mitchell - Snurdy McGurdy & Her Dancin' Shoes

Frank Morgan - Mood Indigo

Steps Ahead - Modern Times   [Perhaps my first jazz show in a club was SA at Peabody's Down Under in the Flats.]

Randy Weston - Portraits of Thelonious Monk

No mention yet of John Carter's Roots and Folklore series?

The 80s were a lot like the 70s, only with more obituaries.

Yes, good call. Nice production by Teo Macero and like you I witnessed that tour where much of this material was featured. I think Al Foster’s drums were particularly well captured on the LPs.
