Bla-bla-bla Listening to blues and jazz

So I'd say I have a varied music taste, recently I want to listen to blues and jazz more in depth if that makes sense but I don't know where to begin. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated and even just the basics and I can go from there. I understand there are different types of blues and jazz and I'd like to listen to all, I'm looking to hear some cool licks and baselines but everything is great!

Thanks in advance

The first jazz album I bought was the Number 1 Jazz Album Ever. 200 different songs for about $10 on iTunes.

Check it out here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-No-Jazz...r/dp/B005EPCVY4

My favourite song is Dial S for Sonny (Sonny Clark)

+1 for Robben Ford. Much more 'jazzy' that your average blues bear.

Saw Ford and Taj Mahal live once, different styles but enjoy both and have semi regular rotation on the iPod. Ford does have the jazzy lines at times.
