Jazz recommendations on lp

can anyone provide some recommendations for jazz on vinyl.
i can't afford to waste my money on poorly mastered recordings.
recently i have found some nice columbia 6eye pressings from the Brubeck catalog (58 newport, the riddle, etc) and some of brubecks catalog from fantasy.

i'm looking for recs from the mingus, coltrane, davis and monk catalogs. horace silver, cannonball adderley, bill evans also.
if you think i'd like a particular artist, by all means let me know.

if you could be so kind would you differentiate between a vintage pressing and a re-pressing. i have no objections to buying reissues if the sound is dead-on as it was intended, but i would rather not be victim to an engineers notion of what the artist and original masters should sound like if they got it right in the first place.

thanks in advance to those that answer my plea for help
Most of the Classic Records re-issues are very good, many are outstanding. Dave Brubeck's Time out is fantastic.
Some others the I really like are Davis, Bag's Groove. Analog Productions has a good re-issue of this. They also did a good job with Bill Evans, sunday at the Village Vanguard. Ben Webester, At the Renaissanceon Analog Productions is one of my favorites. Groove Note is making some great albums: Bill Cuncliff is terrific. I bought the Anthony Wilson trio, but 2 copies had A LOT of surface noise and I sent them back. If you send me an e-mail I'll send you an excell list of my top jazz LPs with the label (most are re-issues). There are too many to list here.
Try to find Jacques Lousier "Play Bach Vol1","...Vol2"... original mono records to listen to the richest music reproduction. There were very few reussues of his records and they're not any different from original. The main thing that I know that all his early albums upto 1965 were pressed in mono versions. Thus in my collection I have Vol1 mono(1959) and Vol2 stereo.

I've also nice collection of Ben Webster original records. you can e-mail me for listing if you're interested. Every record is at least in very good condition.

The main difference I believe that vintage pressed records lived trhough at least half of the century even if visually graded with no scuffs or scratches will "fry a little bacon" during playback. The second main difference that vintage pressed records are pressed to live much longer than light vinyl reissues. To me original issue is the way to have something beyond music. It's like having a relique and you realy find more appreciation when you play it. Most-likely the musical info is transfered to vinyl from tape and the secondary task after primary studio recording to acurately transfer this info onto the vinyl surface. Having this in mind, you should understand that first pressing and reissue will sound slight different, even so slight that no human ear will realize.

The example where original pressing is different from reissues is DOORS(almost every album was poorly mastered).
The reissues of DOORS were remastered before pressing.
Mosaic has bax sets of most of Miles Davis' work. The LP's are wonderful; and the work ranges from his very early sessions with Coltrane and Gil Evans at Columbia, all the way through Bitches Brew....

You should not miss these.
thanks for the quick responses everyone
please keep them coming, i'm a music junkie, always need something new to listen to or hunt for.
btw, i love the blues even more than jazz but sadly most of my library is on cd. the vinyl hunt has begun...
The original 6-eye mono version of Miles Davis "Porgy & Bess" is amazing along with the new Classic Records "Kind of Blue" and "Sketches of Spain". The Blue Note original (or reissue) Eric Dolphy "Out To Lunch" and Cannonball Adderly "Somethin' Else" are simply amamzing. The "Original Jazz Classic (OJC)" pressings are great for the price, usually $9, the Blue Note reissues and Classic Records versions are always top quality. One thing I would reccomend to stay away from are those $10 Columbia reissues, ie Kind of Blue, Mingus' Ah Um, Brubeck's Time Out, etc. I think these pressings are a conspiracy by Sony (half joking) to make people think that LPs are not really better then cds. They are "180g virgin vinyl, from analog tapes" but they sound like they are from 5th generation mix tapes pressed with most worn out stamper they could find. Nothing like the 40 year old original pressings, which in my opinion are unrivaled.
My favorite Bill Evans LP set is The Village Vanguard sessions released exclusively on Mosaic. This was the last recording Bill made before his death. The passion and introspective playing on this multi album set is the finest jazz piano performance since "Waltz for Debbie."

I agree with the responses on this thread, except for Marakanetz. I seldom ( if ever ) disagree with his point of view. However, I own all the original Doors releases as well as the new DCC represses.

My original recordings are dead quiet, equal to the new DCC. However, Jim Morrison's voice is more intense detailed and dynamic on the originals. The drums are cleaner and faster on the original, with micro detail that escapes the repress. The DCC is warmer, ( which can be nice ) particularly the mid bass. I attribute this to the tubes used in the DCC remastering and pressings.

If you do not own any copies of the Doors, and have an opportunity to buy DCC pressing in sealed or perfect condition, do it!

I am just saying that the original LP, pressed when the tape was 30 years younger, possesses certain characteristics that are absent in the new pressings.
Dizzy Gillespie: "Swing Low Sweet Cadillac" on Impulse is very nice, if you can find it. By the way, you can often hear immense differences between original pressings and reissues and the reissues are not always automatically better. Cheers
