No single station these days, but there is a lot of good jazz programming scattered around still on FM and Internet stations.
My current fav is the program "G Strings" featuring a very knowledgeable host and a fantastic variety of Jazz Guitar recordings on WPFW Washington DC (available over Internet) every Sunday morning.
WWOZ in New ORleans is another good station with good sound quality broadcast over the internet.
The Radio Roku service accessible via Internet from a Roku Soundbridge device on your system provides access to thousands of free internet stations, many with very good sound quality, and hundreds of stations that feature Jazz music to some extent spread around a half dozen or so different Jazz related music genres
KRTU 91.7 FM out of Trinity University in San Antonio, TX. Fantastic programming at all-jazz college station. The good stuff, too (if you like your 'smooth jazz', this isn't the station for you).
Log on at call letters >dot< org. Bookmark it! You'll be glad you did. :-)

I tried several of these and found some great stations. My favorite of those recommended so far is accujazz. If you haven't tried it, check it out. You can choose from a number of different 'stations' within the station to suit your mood, including be bop, classic, dixieland, smooth jazz, avant garde, piano, vocal, guitar, saxophone, etc. You can even choose by composer (well, at least some of the great ones), in the event you are in the mood for Monk, or music inspired by Monk, for example.
This station is just tremendous for jazz fans. I look forward to checking out more recommendations others have made. Great thread!
By the way, I can't remember if anyone has mentioned it yet but Pure Jazz is pretty decent as well.
