    If i remember correctly, i think it was Al Dimeola's "Elegant Gypsy". After that i haven't looked back. I think my tastes in jazz realy broadened after picking up the "Progressions 100 years of jazz guitar" cd set.

    I had "where have I known you before" as well. I thought, and still think, that was one of the worst albums ever recorded. I still can't believe how such almighty talent could put out such unlistenable crap. Did you actually really like it, or did you just have it and listen to it?

    I actually like it, but prefer Hymn of The Seventh Galaxy or Romantic Warrior over it.

    I think Kind of Blue was my first CD, but it's kinda hazy because I had a lot of new CD's around that period, from Chet Baker, Louie Armstrong, and John Coltrane.

    I've played jazz trumpet since I was in 5th grade, so about 20 years now. As far as guitarists go, I gravitate towards Sco the most. Big surprise, since he worked with Miles, who is my favorite trumpet player.
