I would start with the giants of jazz, see what you like, and go from there. I'm sure you'll get many recommendations, but here are half a dozen classics (in my opinion) that would be a good starting point. From there, see what you like and continue to explore:

Miles Davis Sextet, Kind of Blue

Duke Ellington Orchestra, Ellington At Newport 1956

Bill Evans Trio, The Complete Village Vanguard Recordings, 1961 [3 CD]

Clifford Brown and Max Roach Quintet, Clifford Brown & Max Roach

Stan Getz, Getz / Gilberto

Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, Jazz At Massey Hall (OJC)

Remember, it is all subjective, a matter of taste.

A couple of suggestions from my humble collection:

John Coltrane:

My favorite things

Cannonball Adderley:
Somethin' Else

Ben Webster meets the Oscar Peterson Trio

McCoy Tyner:
Nights of Ballads and Blues

Chet Baker:
Stan Meets Chet (with Stan Getz)
Italian sessions
