This beautiful atmospheric and moody release by John Abercrombie has always stunned me for both sound quality and musicality. The acclaimed Jazz Fusion guitarist lays down both scripted and improvised parts along with keyboardist Jan Hammer, drummer Jack DeJohnette, and tenor sax player Michael Brecker. ECM Records maintains their high level of attention to sound quality initially releasing this on Compact Disc and Vinyl back in 1984. Admittedly there are several other amazing albums that may arguably be better musically, however the combination of clarity and composition rank Night as my personal favorite.
