The Inner Mounting Flame
4.  The Inner Mounting Flame by John McLaughlin

A Tribute To Jack Johnson
7.  A Tribute To Jack Johnson by Miles Davis

Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos
13.  Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos by Marc Ribot

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Crime And Dissonance
14.  Crime And Dissonance by Ennio Morricone

5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Emergency
15.  Emergency by Tony Williams
The list author says:
  "Along with Billy Cobham of the Mahavishnu Orchestra and Elvin Jones, Tony Williams would appear to be the jazzy influence on Jon Theodore."
