>>>>>>: Please forgive my ignorance but I'm not familiar with Al McKibbon, I'm a fan of that sound you describe him being so instrumental in signifing.
: Could someone tell me some records he played on so I can eduacate myself.<<<<<

This CD has a lot of Al on it.

He was on some of the early Birth of the Cool with Miles. Also
look for the early 60's West Coast stuff he was on with guys like Paul Horn (yes, Paul Horn, the echo flute guy. He sounded great on alto sax back then). Go to a small jazz specialty record store; they'll dig more up for you.
