Highly recommend "Love Supreme" and "Ballads" for a relaxing evening with your favorite peeps.
A Love Supreme more invigorating than laid-back classics like Miles Davis's Kind of Blue, and the harmonies of the first two cuts are grounded enough that nothing is lost from not knowing the original standards. (A lot of jazz is hard to approach today because the context is lost -- nobody knows the tunes or can follow the chord changes, so you can't feel the tension and everything sounds like undirected noodling. The experience is analogous to listening to a remix without knowing the original).
A Love Supreme is literally the first jazz album I recommend to people.
And from there it's nice to jump to the spiritual jazz of Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders.
What I really like about him is when he just screams like a total madman through the saxophone. That's why one of my favorite albums from him is the last live The Olatunji Concert with Pharoah Sanders, where the sick man just roars like a lion. Horrible sound quality but I'd say his strongest band and absolutely brilliant music.
Afro Blue... Actually more for the McCoy Tyner piano work but the whole ensemble is wonderful.
Although I have to admit I’m not so much an avowed Jazz aficionado as I simply enjoy it as background atmospheric “pairing” when I’m working or reading.
Here's a concept from 19th century music that seems connected to the question of thematic refactoring/development: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thematic_transformation
When playing it on mobile there seems to be either a new Spotify feature or some kind of easter egg that triggers, showing a pretty funky visualization (could also be an animation).
