Can you make the question a little broader please? [/sarcasm] Even within jazz there are multiple sub-genres which can be broken down even further into eras and epochs. If you've heard some jazz and enjoyed it, find out who it was and work your way around that. If you really have no idea where to start, I'd suggest starting in the middle and working your way out. Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" is a staple; as is John Coltrane's "Giant Steps." If you prefer a more laid back west coast jazz, Stan Getz is the man for you. If you prefer your jazz with words, Ella Fitzgerald and Chet Baker are personal favorites. If you're looking for some guitar based fusion, check out John McLaughlin and his works with The Mahavishnu Orchestra. And if you want to go out even further than that, there's always the Sun Ra Arkestra. If jazz was GbaTemp, Sun Ra would be the Eof. Happy listening.
You should definitely give some of JJ Cale's stuff ago if you're into Jazz and stuff. :J
