Sideman Discography

Simon says : OK, this might be too massive an idea, but I'll just start adding sideman albums when I feel like it. Please leave blog links or upload things in the comments, that might have a lot to do with how far this gets ... have barely started on the Miles, for example ... want to help?


Thanks Fresh Sly for your hard work on this discography.
