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.

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

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.

mid-late 50s Miles Davis, and late-50s/early 60s John Coltrane is what I've been digging lately.

Tis the time of year when jazz moves into heavy rotation. Pat Metheny Group, Christian McBride, and Brand X are my favs at the moment.

Been enjoying this band called Fortadelis. All their albums are free to download. http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/tomislav.ocvirek


I'd say check out their albums FUNKTIONAL or Convergence first.
