once I got into guitar, I really got into music. Jazz has really great musical value and I wanted to hear more of it. So know any really good emotional (instrumental!) jazz? Or any albums or anything.

thanks

Bebop is to the overall JAZZ umbrella as to Metal is to the overall ROCK umbrella.

Look up some Bebop songs. Charlie Parker.

Step 1: Go to CD store.
Step 2: Buy every Miles Davis CD in the store.
Step 3: ????
Step 4: Profit

It's not guitar heavy, so I doubt you'll learn much in that regard, but just trust me that it's a good investment.

You could try some Larry Carlton, he has loads of instrumental guitar albums and he's an incredible talent.

Really anything the Ellington or Basie orchestra has done. Check out the all american rhythm section. Look up George Benson and Wes Montgomery. For more solo like stuff look into Coltrane, Parker, Clark Terry, JJ Johnson, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis......of course you must remember all these guys played in big bands before they started solo careers.

Also this. The Bird is The Man. And he hung out in Kansas City a lot, thus upping his cool points.
Count Basie as well (KC native) and the great Duke Ellington.
One perk of living in Kansas City is that this was THE place for jazz back in the '20s and '30s. 18th and Vine, home of jazz and only a block or so away from one of the greatest pizza joints in the world.
