I prefer quartets. Thanks!
I could recommend some of my favorites

Wynton Kelly - at midnight
Ahmad Jamal trio - at the Pershing
Art Farmer quartet - to sweden with love
Sonny Clark - Sonny's crib
Dizzy Gillespie - Sonny side up
Chick Corea - now he sings now he sobs
Eric Dolphy - out to lunch
Jackie McLean - lights out
- Vertigo
- one step beyond
Herbie Hancock - empyrean isles
Freddie Hubbard - hub-tones
Duke Ellington - money jungle
Sonny Rollins - freedom suite
- a night at the Village Vanguard
- saxophone colossus
Joe Henderson - in 'n out
Larry Young - unity
Wayne Shorter - juju
-spaek no evil
- night dreamer
Thelonious Monk - Monks dream
- criss cross
- big band and quartet in concert
McCoy Tyner - the real McCoy
- reaching fourth
- inception
Art Farmer - eleven

I could really go on all day ....but that could keep you busy for a while :)

and if you enjoy A Love Supreme ....check out Giant Steps , Coltrane , and all his other records
