The guys above me mentioned some classics. if you want to branch out a bit from the standard swingy stuff, check these out:


Milestones - Miles Davis (crazy Hard Bop)
Cannonball's Bossa Nova - Cannonball Adderley (Latin Jazz - Sambas and Bossas)
Headhunters - Herbie Hancock (funky Jazz Fusion)

Coltrane. Honestly, even once I got diehard into jazz and moved onto deeper jazz groups I always love Coltrane, it's crazy. I love it.

Get everything you can by Thelonious Monk, the greatest jazz musician who ever lived. You'll hear everyone from Max Roach to Art Blakey to Ben Riley.

I like those lists, those are helpful. I like the fusion one too, I love Greyboy Allstars and Soulive even though I'm not too keen on Soulive's drummer. Ever listen to Lettuce?

I get a great feeling playing Monk tunes. Its as if they're written by a drummer. Having said that, Monk often played piano as if he was a drummer. I'd recommend the album Misterioso to every drummer who even remotely likes jazz. Though this particular album seems to be a bit over looked, Roy Haynes playing complements the music perfectly and his solos on it are like nothing i've ever heard.
