I would try some cool jazz/ smooth jazz. Have a look at some typical swing, blues and soul stuff too as you can always find some nice repertoire. If you're looking for something a bit more experimental look at improv jazz. For more upbeat jazz have a look at bebop or jazz fusion- a combination of rhythm and blues and funk rhythms to create a kind of "rock and roll" styled jazz. Some artists that you might find helpful: Duke Ellington, Mulgrew Miller, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Count Basie, Coleman Hawkins, Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, Gregory Porter, Snarky Puppy, Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, BBC Big Band, Ray Charles, Ornette Coleman, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Glenn Miller Orchestra.

You need to go classic So that's Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker etc.

Miles is my 100,000% favourite of all time, so I'd definitely listen to scores such as "My Ship" and "Autumn Leaves." He did the soundtrack to an old French movie (Ascenseur pour l'échafaud) which is killer, so that's a must for him. As for Charlie Parker, Yardbird Suite as a good one, as is Ornithology.

This is a pretty modern recommendation, so I'm not sure if you'd be interested but the sax riffs are pretty sweet during the verses.

But yeah, if you have Spotify, that's p. good for finding related artists. Just punch in Miles Davis and let the program find similar music for you.

Sounds like a waltzy soundtrack. Try Quincy Jones or Henry Mancini.

Charlie Parker, and most of bebop in general may be a bit too depressing and complex for him. I say he should start off with soundtracks for now then move onto the bebop. He might like Miles though, he's pretty accessible.
I was listening to Ascenseur pour l'échafaud a couple of days ago actually, really good stuff.
