Hmmm... How about Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton?

Davis, Coltrane, Mingus and Monk I say. All well known and very talented.

Oh, I see...

Sidney Bechet, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, and Thelonius Monk



EDIT: as far as bonafide icons are concerned, I'd go with:

Armstrong, Davis, Monk, & Coltrane

Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Charlie Parker - guys who really influenced the musicians who came after them.

Honourable mentions: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie

My Mount Rushmore of Jazz would go something like this.

Louis Armstrong to represent New Orleans Jazz
Duke Ellington to represent Swing
Charlie Parker to represent Be-Bop
Miles Davis to represent just about everything that followed

Since they are building a monument to Crazy Horse near Rushmore, I would put a stand alone monument to John Coltrane because he's my favorite.

I think Jedey's selections are great. If I did it for instruments I guess I'd go with

Armstrong - trumpet
Coltrane - sax
Peterson - piano
Reinhardt - guitar
