You may also want to check some of Bill Evans' albums (he played piano in Kind of Blue and is one of my favorite pianists this side of Thelonious Monk. Waltz for Debby is a good place to start, I think.
The worst part is that I knew who the correct Jack Johnson was and still!

Since you and Yup both mentioned him I'll probably start there.

The only Bill Evans I have is Conversations With Myself, which I think has him playing along with two other tracks of himself. Pretty cool.

That's also a nice album as well, I think it was the first solo Bill Evans I heard.

And while we are talking about pianists who played with Miles, I would also mention Keith Jarrett. His Koln Concert may be somewhat overplayed (being one of the best selling jazz albums), but it is still fantastic.

There's also Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. Miles groomed an incredible amount of jazz greats.

Hancock's Headhunters is one of my favorite jazz albums, period. Really, really funky. I think I used one of the songs in my DI playlist sometime ago.

I am someone who hates most jazz bands (at least at a rudimentary high school or cheap lounge or 80s radio level, but real good jazz is hard to beat.

Kind of Blue is the "one jazz album you need if you don't like jazz" kind of album. It's essential.

That said, also check out Miles Davis' 'Round About Midnight. It's melodic, not too wank-y or challenging, and has a few standards that are really pleasing and not horribly saccharine. Has that classic 50s sound and just feels warm and perfect. Probably some of his more accessible stuff, though his more experimental stuff is great too down the line ('Sorcerer' being my fav).

Kenny Burrell - Midnight Blue is a good jazz/blues guitar album to jump over to if you want to take that tack; moods form sombre and late-night to a little more peppy. I hate blues guitar and I like this album, so there you go for some further reading.

I had Watermelon Man (Headhunters version) on my DI list this time until the last second, when I decided to put a Wayne Shorter track on there instead. Yeah, Headhunters is fabulous, as is a great deal of Herbie's catalogue.

It's a masterpiece. Definitely a must for people who want to venture into funk outside of Parliament/Funkadelic/Old Gregg.

Can I just take this moment to say I never found Old Gregg even slightly funny? Very annoying cos all my friends saw it and started quoting it ad nauseam.

what is that? i mean, is that from a tv show or something? cos i saw something very similar on tv once at like 4am, same guy, equally unfunny and similar in its jokes. i think it involved pissing all over everyone. and there was a song and dance number at the end i wish i could take back having ever seen.
