Gimmie some Jazz

Looking for some recommendations, bear in mind I know nothing about jazz

I was recommended not too long ago, on the music forum, an album by Bill Evans and Jim Hall, Undercurrent. Really really enjoyed it. Haven listened to some other stuff by those two lads and enjoyed it as well.

So just looking for some recommendation for similar stuff to the above. I'd tried some John Coltrane but didn't like it as much, so I suppose I'm looking for more chilled out sorta stuff.

If you want to check out some more modern artists, try David Sanborn and Rick Margitza.

After watching La La Land, I ended up checking out Spotify's offering. Very handy collection of Playlists and Artists, though obviously recommendations may prove more fruitful.

Like yourself I've barely dipped my toe into jazz but what I've liked so far for chilled out vibes is Charles Mingus. 'Kind of Blue' by Miles David is a classic for a good reason, also Charlie Parker. Django Reinhard is great jazz guitar (he only had two working fingers!)
