Can't go wrong with Dave Weckl, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Bill Bruford.

john coltrane-a love supreme, one of the greatest drummers you will ever hear elvin jones is on that.

Blue note records-1950's through 1960's. most of the stuff you find on this record label at this time will satisfy ( google search blue note records and dig around they are still in existence, or go on ebay and type in blue note records and just browse to get an idea.

Miles davis- sorcerer, miles in the sky, esp, filles de kilmanjaro, miles smiles. all of these records have tony williams, another one of the greatest drummers you will ever hear.

thelonious monk-all the stuff on pacific jazz records with art blakey, john coltrane and coleman hawkins together, what a trip. also the 60's columbia records stuff like, underground, criss-cross, brilliant corners. frankie dunlop on drums for the coulmbia stuff.

art blakey ( and the jazz messengers )- pretty much anything 1950's to late 1960's a group that changed a lot through out its tenure featured people like horace silver, donald byrd, bobby timmons, wayne shorter, freddie hubbard. among many many others.

try and youtube some of these people too...

here is the blue note wikipedia...its valuable for a background but also for all of the links to other musicians and important figures in jazz. many of the important figures in jazz recorded for this label at one point or another

What I love about jazz is the way songs can be interpreted and played. For example, Thelonious Monk - Straight No Chaser, great tune. Buddy Rich Big band took the tune and upped it to some inhumn tempo and it's absolutely kicking, without doubt one of my favourite tunes.

There is a great live album of Monk and Miles Davis you can get on itunes, Live at Newport 1958 and 1963.

Any Miles Davis album, especially Kind of Blue, Birth of the Cool, Cookin, Relaxin, Workin, and Steamin'
also John Coltrane - Giant Steps, Soultrane, or BlueTrane
Try out some Buddy Rich or Gene Krupa, definitewly some Duke Ellington and Count Basie.
for more obscure stuff you might want to try Ed Blackwell.
Beat on.
