Hmmm, since I don't know what you think is "crap", I'm going to give you some random suggestions. Jazz artists that are good to me:

Miles Davis
Albert Ayler
Dave Brubeck
Charles Mingus
Art Tatum
Stan Getz
Duke Ellington
Thelonious Monk
Louis Armstrong
King Oliver
Benny Goodman
Glenn Miller

Just to name a few.

Jazz is a really broad genre of music, what kind of stuff interests you? Noisy and experimental? Dancy? Mellow? Heavily orchestrated? Simple? Old? Modern?

I will say that I think most jazz fusion from the 70's and 80's is crap. Except for Weather Report and anything else that Jaco Pastorius did.

Jazz really is a deep genre with a while lot of different sounding stuff.
Jazz that I think is good:
Eric Dolphy
Miles Davis
Jelly Roll Morton
Dexter Gordon
Thelonious Monk
Dave Brubreck
Charlie Mingus
Any dixieland stuff
Duke Ellington
Ella Fitzgerald

just avoid Kenny G

does anyone discuss disc jockeys of the 50s who played jazz? don't remember most of the names, but my favorite was Phil Mckellar. His theme song was written by Geo Shearing named the feller mckellar.

I agree with all of thr above, but would like to add a few newer groups.

Badbadnotgood
The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble
Bohren & der Club of Gore
Yesterdays New Quintet
Contemporary Noise Quintet
Hidden Orchestra
Floex

Those are a few new jazz groups that I think are fantastic. Enjoy... I hope.

You'd better be ready to add Herbie Hancock's collaborations with the Headhunters to that list of exceptions or there might have to be some words spoken...

Actually I love Herbie Hancock, so yeah. Confrontation successfully avoided.

The Manhattan Transfer is pretty good. So is Linda Eder, though she doesnt always do jazz.
