there's already a huge thread with a ton of suggested listening, i'd suggest you go search for that, it's very well done.
but for those artists,
miles - kind of blue
coltrane - my favorite things or a love supreme
wes- the incredible jazz guitar (i believe that's the title)

happy listening.

I'd say Kind of Blue by Miles Davis. It's top notch.
Feel free to call me Kyle.

my suggestions

miles - seven steps to heaven
coltrane - blue train
parker - the ken burns jazz anthology is a great collection to start with, I find that the individual albums are really hard to find
wes - smokin' at the half note and incredible jazz guitar

I feel Kind of Blue is made too much of a show about. Miles has some more interesting stuff, like Seven Steps to heaven.

Might I add to that list Horace Silver - Song for my Father.

It's an excellent one.
