I Am Sadly Lacking in Blues/Soul/Jazz

I'm mainly thinking of Otis Redding, Otis Rush, Muddy Waters right now. I really like what I've heard from all of them, which isn't much. Can anyone help me out?

Jazz:

Bitches Brew by Miles Davis
Romantic Warrior by Return To Forever
A Love Supreme by John Coltrane

Those are my top three jazz albums.

As for jazz, I am immensely fond of Miles Davis and his circle, including John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, and Wynton Kelly. You might try these:

Miles: 'Round About Midnight, Kind of Blue, Nefertiti - Bitches Brew is excellent but unfortunately not an immediately accessible album

Coltrane: Blue Train, Giant Steps

Hancock: Empyrean Isles, Maiden Voyage

Kelly: Kelly Blue

If anyone has any songs by Otis Rush and/or Otis Redding, could you send a few my way to jesusgirl06@yahoo.com

I'm not a big fan of Jazz and I'll probably crucified by the Jazz purists out there but for those who are new to the genre or those who may not like "traditional" Jazz very much I would suggest Time Out by The Dave Brubeck Quartet.

It contains one of the most recognizable (and commercially successful) Jazz songs ever, Take 5:
