Thelonius Monk and Charlie Mingus are an absolute. There's some very good Monk compilations to get started with, and Mingus 'Ah Um' is a very good intro. His Black Saint And The Sinner Lady is one of the very greatest jazz recordings.

I would then go deeper with Coltrane, and Alice Coltrane is a must. Unique, sublime and quite beautiful. Then I'd go for Pharoah Sanders, Mahavishnu Orchestra and John Mclaighlin's Shakti via Miles Davis's In A Silent Way, which kick started the afore mentioned jazz fusion scene.

Peace.

Edit: For some warming soulful guitar I would recommend Kenny Burrel 'At The five Spot Cafe' and Wes Montgomery 'Incredible Jazz Guitar of..'.
