Great and well-recorded jazz on CD

I'm looking for recommendations for great CDs that are also great recordings. Let's keep it to jazz recorded between 1950 and 1980. Some CDs I've been listening to recently that fit the bill as posed in this post include Sarah Vaughan's first LP with Clifford Brown (Verve), or Bags Meets Wes (Riverside).

I listen to just about anything, including free jazz and fusion. Not looking for suggestions of awesome records per se, or for suggestions of audophile-quality recent jazz.

I listen to music for all sorts of reasons, and some of the albums I like are horribly recorded. I do appreciate a nice Sun Ra album for example that has bedroom-quality recording (hear the telephone ring just before the cut ends!) But that's not what I'm asking about here. On the other hand, I don't mind old recordings where you can really hear the hiss and the bacon frying---those can still be beautiful recordings with a sense of space, depth, etc.

Any ideas? Thanks.
Sonny Clark - Cool Struttin

Second that one.

Also "Dave Grusin Homage to Duke"
Sonny Rollins - Way Out West
Charles Mingus - Mingus Ah Um many from which to choose : )
Clifford Jordan "Live At Ethyll's"
Ellington "Blues In Orbit"
Charlie Haden "Nocturne"

These came to mind right off the bat.....
Jimmy Smith-The Cat
McCoy Tyner-Sahara
Bill Evans-Live in Tokyo
Dexter Gordon-Live at Carnegie Hall
Stan Getz-The Dolphin
Second the Poll Winners recommendation, in fact the entire catalogue of the label by that name is worth exploring. Lots of sure bets, my fave at the moment being Red Garland's "Groovy".
