Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 albums that have shaped me so far. The album this week is Blues and the Abstract Truth by Oliver Nelson.

Released in 1961 on Impulse!, this album brings together a line-up of notable musicians, to deliver an piece of work that oozes with slick timeless class. Free jazz from the early 60′s, it doesn’t get much better than this.
