All time #1 for me is "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed"
Followed in no particular order by:
Europa (Santana)
Soul Sacrifice (Santana)
Chunk-a-funk (Santana)
Jessica (ABB)
High Falls (ABB)
King Solomon's Marbles (GD)
Spanish Jam (GD)
Green Onions (BT&MGs)

Thank You Cody, we are forever Grateful!

Jeff Beck's album There & Back with Simon Phillips on drums does it for me.

This thread makes you think, there is alot of awesome musicians past and present from Santana, Warren & Derek, Jimmy Page, Edge, Slash and I always thought that Rush was outstanding band for only being 3 pieces. But my love is the acoustic sets. So here's a few musicians and songs that I enjoy.

David Gilmour - Wish You Were Here
Steve Howe - Clap
Jorma Kaukonen w/ Jack Casady - Uncle Sams Blues, Candy Man, Hesitation Blues (Hot Tuna Acoustic)

And lets not forget Reverend Gary Davis who brought us some great songs:
Death Don't Have No Mercy
Candyman
Samson & Delilah
Cocaine Blues
Hesitation Blues

Rush 2112 full album

Black Flag - The Process of Weeding Out (1985) - entire EP.
King Crimson - Larks' Tongues In Aspic, Part I
King Crimson - Larks' Tongues In Aspic, Part II
King Crimson - The Talking Drum
King Crimson - The Devil's Triangle
King Crimson - Prelude: Song of The Gulls
King Crimson - A Sailor's Tale
Rush - YYZ
Venom - At War with Satan - not really, but I wanted to say it anyway.

I can't do this thread justice. There are so many prog and metal instrumentals that I know I'm forgetting. I'm ashamed of my dull memory.

Good call I forgot about - Hooteroll, also the Live CD is really good too.

I also luv Miles but I thought that for this thread we were leaving Jazz out of it. During A Love Supreme, don't they chant A Love Supreme. Just kidding.

Since we are including Jerry, (though some of this can be labeled Jazz) here are a few instrumentals that just knock my socks off:
Fast Tone - Reconstruction
Long Train Running - Reconstruction
Keepers - Garcia Saunders
Edward the Mad Shirt Grinder - Garcia Hopkins
