    If the Donald Byrd might be the Classic and not just an Exclusive, I guess Fancy Free due to the Spotify playlist. I'd prefer something else though...

    Byrd is an exclusive, the fourth BN series unless you mean he will be both an exclusive and a Classics pick

    Never been a big fan of jazz fusion...i generally find it cheesy. However, they've picked funk albums that I've liked, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for now. Don't think I can go in blind on a jazz fusion album though.

    I included a photo of the clue? Unfortunately it was either that size or way too big since I screenshot it

    If it is jazz fusion in the sense/style of Bitches' Brew I am pretty sure I will like it a lot

    I could sticky pudding with some Mahavishnu or maybe some solo Billy Cobham (arguably the greatest drummer ever).

    Not quite a classic (though it is 25 years old) so not sure it's right for this track but I'm gonna guess it anyway as I'd love for it to happen:

    I have an original of this album, spun it last night actually, and I’d still grab it as a Clssics pic.

    Great stickying pudding album.
