Building a Jazz Library
Here is the link to BuildingAJazzLibrary.pdf.
Download Steve Williams' lists of jazz music and recommended jazz record companies. The printable version is intended to be a listing of artists and recordings deemed essential to a basic jazz library.

Order doesn't determine importance of one recording over the other.
