I really want to listen to some jazz but don't like a lot of what i hear. Some i do. I liked what i heard from Herbie Hancock, Charlie Hunter, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, John Scofield, and George Benson. So anymore suggestions?
charlie parker's worth listening to, also cannonbal addreley, dexter gordon, charlie bird.

From what I gather you like mostly traditional bop and soul. Wes Montgomery, Charlie Parker, and Bill Evans easily fit into those.

For more contemporary jazz, listen to Kurt Rosenwinkel, Brad Mehldau, and Mark Turner.

But our Band is Listana
Just a few that haven't been mentioned: Horace Silver, Sonny Rollins, and Oliver Nelson.
Bill Evans is fantastic. Also Pat Metheny, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Joe Pass. I know they've all been mentioned already, but they're great.

Check out the song Take Five - Dave Brubeck, it's really good.

i'll second that. it was my introduction to jazz (plus it has a very good tab here on UG). the album itself is pretty solid and very accessible.
