Thanks for the additional artist and album recommendations, including the modern jazz list. Even though I am interested in the classics those albums were fantastic.

More recommendations are always welcome, have a solid foundation so far. smily_headphones1.gif

Listening right now to a lovely 1957 (Chess GRP 18032) recording... Ahmad Jamal - Ahmad's Blues. Live... great recording despite it's age... you can almost smell the room...
