So many instrumental Classics, I so "loved" listerning & growing up to: the names escapes me to much of those treausure masterpieces but I give it a go...'I love everything by Herb Albert & the Tiaquani Brass (I know I misspelled his bands name but that's a dozie to spell). The legendary Herb Albert had the ultimate horn section band/he could play anything! Now lets see to pick a best instrumental song from another band instead of saying "I love everything" - well there's RARE EARTH's "Thoughts" from their Rare Earth live 1971 album which I still have/it's Soulfully awesome, their an Soul-Jam band...-their best known for their unique extensive jams like 20-30 minutes long for "1" song, their Classic "Thoughts" is 20 minutes long. The Soulful Iconic Barry White's "Love Orchestra" song, it's absolutely beautiful masterpiece & dig YANNI, too. Joe Satriani-Surfing w/the Alien, Impelleterri (his name is difficult/I hope you know whom I'm speaking of...'Rob Rock used to be in his band), Jake E. Lee-Exithouse, Jade Song and there's one that I like most but the name escapes me: it's the one that the Rebel guitarist refused to change it's song title 'cause the Record Company or the Producer thought it was outrageous but JAKE stick with his instincts and kept the song title as it was: it's the last instrumental song on Jake E. Lee's "A Fine Pink Mist" and it's a blast monsterpiece of a song, check it out! That's it for now...'there's more but this will do for now. 8)

What about the Edgar Winter Group's "Frankenstein". Edgar plays on 3 instruments (Sax, Keyboards, and Percussion). The man is a beast.

You guys did well naming almost everything I'd name of the genre. Some others that kick equal a$$...

Steve Stevens - Flamenco a Go Go (The entire album and anything else he does flamenco just rips.)

Anything SRV

Jimmy Page - Bron Y Aur

Jorma Kauku... however it's spelled. - Embryonic Journey

Rick Emmit - Midsummer's Daydream


You can see my love of acoustic in those choices. Those last 3 tunes lead me to 10+ years of nothing but acoustic fingerstyle. There's a lot of killer stuff in that genre that never really seems to see the light of day in the general music world.
