    4. The Shape of Jazz to Come by Ornette Coleman
    5. Complete Live at the Plugged Nickel by Miles Davis Quintet
    6. Live at the It Club by Thelonious Monk
    7. Point of Departure by Andrew Hill
    8. The Real McCoy by McCoy Tyner
    9. Three Ragas by Ravi Shankar
    10. The Complete Village Vanguard Recordings by Bill Evans Trio
    11. Out to Lunch by Eric Dolphy
    ---
    12. Kind of Blue by Miles Davis
    13. Portrait in Jazz by Bill Evans Trio
    14. Brilliant Corners by Thelonious Monk

    Omnia - Crone of War
    Omnia - Paganfolk
    The Moon and the Nightspirit - Rego Rejtem
    The Moon and the Nightspirit - Mohalepte
    The Moon and the Nightspirit - Of Dreams Forgotten And Fables Untold

    If anyone has any suggestions for artist similar to these 2 above I'm all ears. Because I always have trouble finding something with a similar vibe and i'm almost convinced there is actually nothing like them.

    Ordo Funebris - Cantar A La Morte - Fabula Triste
    Narsilion - Return To The Silver Forest
    Toh Kay - The Hand That Thieves
    Elvenking - Two Tragedy Poets (mostly acoustic i guess...)
    Damh the Bard - Spirit of Albion

    I think these should all fit the bill mostly. It's all folk-y stuff.

    What is amazing about youtube is that if you are into acoustic music you can just search a song on there and there's a good chance that the artist did an acoustic version for a radio station or some sort of live event.
