      A Few -> Art Blakey, The Modern Jazz Quartet, Dave Brubeck, Alex Skolnick Trio, old George Benson stuff.

      Dont overlook good Jazz Vocal stuff like Diana Krall, Sinatra, Harry Connick, Jane Monheit..

                    pat martino and wes montgomery are my favorite jazz guitarists (both have versions of 'road song' where you can find two different takes on a GREAT tune...both are ingenious)

                    charlie parker (sax player) was an amazing composer and soloist, but you've gotta be a pretty intense listener to truly appreciate what he had going on ('donna lee' is a really cool fast bob piece of his)

                    jaco pastorious...hopefully you atleast know of him, check it his version of 'donna lee' as well if you can

                    anything by miles davis is essential

                    chick corea (sp?) has done some really cool tunes as well (check out the song 'spain')

                      Good post and I can add to the essential jazz guitar to listen to.

                      Tal Farlow's version of Cherokee on the Verve Label has to be heard to be believed. He is the first truly great modern jazz guitarist.
