6. Joanne Brackeen: Six Ate (Candid, 1996; originally released in 1975 as Snooze)
By the time she recorded this, her first album as a leader, Brackeen was already 36 years old, a seasoned jazz veteran following stints with Woody Shaw, Art Blakey, Joe Henderson, and others. And she sure picked some heavy friends to play with on her “debut”: bassist Cecil McBee and drummer Billy Hart. Their supportive presence helps to draw out astonishing piano solos on tunes like Miles Davis’ “Circle,” Wayne Shorter’s “Nefertiti,” and the Brackeen original “Snooze.” Although you can occasionally feel the shadow of McCoy Tyner looming over Brackeen’s keyboard (an influence that would fade in later years), her infectious adventurousness and compelling sense of drama are all her own.
