I hesitate to call any of my recommendations "obscure," but I'm not sure that any of the following have appeared above:
JACKIE MCLEAN: "Let Freedom Ring" If it were possible to wear out the laser on a cd player, this cd would do it. I rank it in the top 5 hardbob recordings ever made. It is THAT good.
SONNY CLARk: "Leapin' and Lopin'"
HANK MOBLEY: "Third Season" Sonny Geenwich's guitar is a hidden gem
JOE HENDERSON: "Mode for Joe" and "In n' Out"
There are lots more, but I thought I'd start with these. Not to be redundant, repetitive, tautological, and say the same thing twice, but you will never regret buying "Let Freedom Ring"!

Two of the great big band albums since the swing era are:
GEORGE RUSSELL: "Jazz in the Space Age" which are Russell compositions featuring a 1960s line-up with the pianists Bill Evans and Paul Bley as the featured soloists!! Other notables include Bob Brookmeyer, Milt Hinton, Charlie Persip, Bary Galbraith, Frank Rehak, Hal McKusick etc. etc.
MUHAL RICHARD ABRAMS ORCHESTRA: "Blu Blu Blu" this is simply one of the best big band albums released in the 1990s with Jack Walrath, Lindsey Horner, Warren Smith, Thurman Barker etc. etc.
