Which albums would you say should be in every Jazz collection?  lets go to the very basics...

This is what I would recommend:
Dave Brubeck's Live at Carnegie Hall
Keith Jarrett's The Köln Concert
Chick Corea's Now he Sings Now he Sobs
Something representative by Scott Joplin
Sun Ra's Angels & Demons at Play
Miles Davis' Live Evil
Mahavishnu Orchestra's Birds of Fire
Duke Ellington's New Orleans Suite
Michael's Sonic Kaleidoscope Mondays 5:00pm EST(re-runs Thursdays 3:00pm) @ Delicious Agony Progressive Rock Radio: http://www.deliciousagony.com

I have a 3 LP collection that covers much of Fletcher Henderson's  career, it really shows the development of early jazz over the years. 
Oddly enough its called "Study in Frustration", he hated the title and I can see why.
