I know Bud Powell and Monk? but they did something that was game changing as with Herbie Nicholls. They did Jazz in their own distinct manner. Do not forget that Monk's Blue Note recordings are the first of many of those classics he composed. Bud Powell's  first two albums are lessons on piano playing to say the least.  Herbie was Herbie. he did it his way.

You forgot Grachan Moncur III!

Out of those I'm still not really sure, what would you recommend me by George Braith, Bud Powell and Herbie Nicholls?

I knew I'd miss one. My excuse is he is between Hank Mobley and Monk in my collection and the two albums disappear in the middle.EmbarrassedLOL
 
George Braith you can get the whole lot The Complete Blue Note sessions. He played two horns at once. Not bad hey Clap, Love his take of "Mary had a Little Lamb" He was different.
 
Herbie Nicholls....."The Prophetic Vol 1 and 2. He really was the first to start that  disjoint in his sound and technique. They were done in 1955. Art Blakey is drumming. He wrote all his own stuff. Great trio albums. I have them seperate Pablo.
 
Bud Powell is "The Amazing Bud Powell"  The line up is great. Sonny Rollins and Fats Navarro are on the first half and trio for the rest Max Roach is drumming

I went for Eric, only the one album but what an album. I left off Sam Rivers as well as Grachan Moncur. Alright no excuse I know. Embarrassed 
 
Bud Powell is Bop but I stuck him here due to the importance of his early material at Blue Note.
 
George Braith is one strange one being sort of Soul with organ but not Hard Bop really either. One can also argue where is Ken Mcintyre. I like some of their stuff but I would not rate it essential Blue Note.
