Perhaps more soul/R&B than Jazz, but a good listen.

For ultra cool exponents of what's been called "chamber jazz" you can't beat the Modern Jazz Quartet.

Milt Jackson's swinging vibraharp underscored by John Lewis' diffident piano lines were around for decades, reinventing themselves. This 1955 number is a good place to start:

If you like the Modern Jazz Quartet try their version of Porgy and Bess, recommended.

I'm not sure if this has changed to just a recommended albums list or not but two I love:
Jimmy Smith - The Cat
Mongo Santamaria - Watermelon Man.

I love this too...sadly, my copy of the LP has a horrible scratch for the first minute or so of  the very quiet intro but otherwise it sounds great, highly recommended
