I'm trying to think of straight up jazz rather than JRF.
Miles Davis is hard for me to shake.  I've got a good set of his straight up jazz albums as well as the fusion ones. But I'm impressed by the diversity of stuff from Cool through to whatever album you'd consider his last straight up jazz album.  Nadav Remez was a recent discovery thanks to The Atlanta Jazz Festival.  Sort of like a Jewish Pat Metheny.  I've gone gaga for Zorn, but I don't know if The Dreamers, O'o, and Nosferatu qualify as straight up jazz.

You reminded me of John Zorn's O'o and the fact that I haven't listened to it in maybe a year.

At the moment probably something like this:
Bill Evans
Miles Davis
John Coltrane
McCoy Tyner

I would like to get more into Bossa Nova if I can get my hands on some good recordings, so Stan Getz would be somewhere there.

This probably won't mean much, as I've just started listening to Jazz within the last few days. I guess I'm just setting a foundation for my Jazz listening at the moment. So right now I guess my favorites would be.

Soft Machine (of course)
Miles Davis
Ornette Coleman
Eric Dolphy
Lee Morgan

Trying to find people who are not exactly fusion ... It's more of a wish list of people who struck me and whose discography i have to explore :

Ornette Coleman
Bill Evans
Joe Pass
Thelonious Monk

The Pass/Evans approach of the solo instrument and the work on resonance (and sometimes dissonance) is appealing to me a lot right now - like what Metheny did recently. I love is Girl from Ipanema version.
If Monk and Evans had a brainchild he would be my perfect jazz pianist.

A cross between Bill Evans and T Monk might sound like Herbie Nichols.
