I know I love the classics (Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Dave Brubeck [R.I.P]), but beyond that, the most jazz I've listened to has been from the Cowboy Bebop soundtracks (good stuff if you haven't heard of it)

 

I love the classics as well, but I'm also a big supporter of current jazz artists - modern jazz is putting out some really innovative and engaging music. That being said, checkout the following - I tried to pick some albums that are more straight-ahead jazz:

 

Eric Reed - The Baddest Monk

Christian McBride & Inside Straight - Kind of Brown

Donald Harrison Jr - Indian Blues

The Ninety Miles Project (Cuban influenced jazz)

Gregory Porter - Be Good

Good starters here:

 

Miles Davis-Kind of Blue

John Coltrane-A Love Supreme

Canonball Adderly-Somethin' Else

Charles Mingus-Ah Um

 

Also, look for anything Miles did on the Prestige label...once you're done with that, and want something freakier:

 

Wayne Shorter-the All Seeing Eye

Ornette Coleman-Free Jazz A Collective Improvization

Sun Ra-the Heliocentric Worlds of Sun Ra

Sun Ra-Atlantis

Pharoah Sanders-Black Unity

Alice Coltrane-Journey in Satchidinanda

Herbie Hancock-Sextant

Herbie Hancock-Crossings

 

Have fun :)

Thanks for the recommends, I'll take a look at them when I get a bit more time.

For now, though, I came across this little gem

Solid album. Very original, exciting, and tight improvisations.
