Jazz newbie


I'm dipping my feet in the water in the world of Jazz.

I have- Miles-Kind of Blue and John Coltrane's -Love Supreme.

What other titles would you recommend ?

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Jazz covers a lot of ground! Despite what one sees in the hi-fi magazines, it didn’t end in 1970.

A couple of newer releases I’ve enjoyed are "Tangents" by Gary Peacock and "For Such a Time as This" by Eric Reed.

A streaming service is a great way to get acquainted with any genre new to you.

Cannonball Adderly: Somethin' Else

Lee Morgan: The Sidewinder

The Dave Brubeck Quartet: Take Five

Stan Getz and Oscar Peterson.
Freddie Hubbard open Sesame 
Wes Montegomery
Chet Baker
Thelonius Monk - Brilliant Corners

Frogman beat me to it.  There are 20,000+ posts on the "Jazz for Aficionados" forum with lots of comments on the music and tons of links to single cuts and entire albums on YouTube.  Great way to learn and listen.

While I'm here, I'd add:

Sonny Rollins - Saxophone ColossusMiles Davis - Nefertiti
I’ll add a few here to get this on my radar.

Miles Davis everything, but Sketches of Spain, Bitches Brew, in addition to KoB.
I’m not fond of  Coltrane, but Ben Webster - anything, and Dexter Gordon - Round Midnight, and The Other side of Round Midnight.
Modern Jazz Quartet - anything.
Horace Tapscott - anything
Yuseff Lateef - start with Eastern Sounds, then Lateef
Terence Blanchard - Jazz for Film, but anything els too.

for Guitar - Jim Hall, Concierto, and All Across the City
John Abercrombie Quartette - M, Arcade, Timeless, anything really

Paul Desmond- That’s Jazz
Herbie Hancock - Maiden Voyage






Weather Report - I Sing The Body Electric! Sweet Nighter! Heavy Weather! Mr.Gone!
Anything on the ECM label!
Bill Evans Trio - Waltz For Debby and Sunday at the Village Vanguard
Sonny Clark - Cool Struttin'
Ben Webster Meets Oscar Peterson
Chet Baker Sings
John Coltrane - Blue Train
Dave Brubeck - Time Out (#1 seller of all time)
Milt Jackson & Wes Montgomery - Bags Meets Wes
Charles Mingus - Ahh Umm

Cheers,
Spencer
I only realized I’m a jazz lover in the last 6 months. Here’s what I did to figure out what styles I liked and it’s worked perfectly and is a ton of fun. 
Go to your local record shops and just start buying a ton of used records. Spend a few hundred bucks and enjoy the journey of experiencing new music! Turns out for me, I’m a huge Stanley Turrentine fan and I love jazz with a heavy blues influence. Stanley with the 3 Sounds Blue Hour album is musical bliss!
You can spend all kinds of time and money running around to record stores and coming home to check everything out.  That's the old PITA way many of us had to use because it was our only choice.  I'm telling you, learn to use the internet tools we all have access to now.  Again, try "Jazz Aficionados."  Or explore the web any way you choose - there are plenty of great sources out there.  Check out sound clips.  Learn the modern way.
Keegiam is correct. What is available on line is a treasure trove of incredible performances; in print, out of print and historical (never in print). It is also a fantastic and inexpensive way to approach the learning experience in a way that is both very interesting and actually helps in keeping one more open to periods in the music that may not be, AT FIRST, the most accessible or enjoyable.

Jazz, like all serious art forms, has a strong evolutionary element. From a historical or chronological standpoint, artists build on what came before; and for the new listener, having at least some familiarity with the early periods in the music is very helpful. For instance, you are much more likely to understand and appreciate ‘60s (and later) Miles Davis if you are familiar with earlier Miles. Late Coltrane, if you are familiar with ‘50s Coltrane; and ‘50’s Coltrane if you have listened to at least some Dexter Gordon. Etc, etc.

Enjoy the ride!
