wayne shorter w/milton nasciemento "native dancer" - beautiful, very underappreciated (and great 'makeout music'!)
art ensemble of chicago - all of their early recordings (people in sorrow, les stances a sophie, tutankhamen, fanfare for the warriors, a jackson in your house, phase one, the spiritual) - incredible collection of talent and creative energy, makes most other 'free jazz' sound like a mess. the music may have been born in a very political era, but it has aged just fine.
laurie anderson 'strange angels' - who'd have thought this 'performance artist' would crank out a beautiful, well-engineered album of beautifully sung songs? (and, for a great 'demo your system' CD, her 'life on a string' is a stunner)
Anything by dEUS (no, I dont have the key locked, thats the only way to write it), sadly very compressed masterings lately. http://deus.be/
