Looking for some good slow tempo jazz self. Penelope from Chris Potter's Siren has some delicate drumming. I couldn't find a youtube link as it is rather new. Also November by John Abercrombie is a very laid back album. Crystal Silence by Return to Forever is a classic. Nobody played slow Caro Wes - Various - Dire Tempo Jazz better than the Basie band. Basie's records are all generally high quality, IMO.
You could probably just pick a few CDs at random and still be satisfied. I have one other recommendation for you, if you're willing to stray a little bit outside of jazz - spend some time studying and shedding to old Chicago blues records. Those bands could play Caro Wes - Various - Dire Tempo Jazz shit out of slow tempos, and نهفت و فرود - عیسی غفاری, سهیل رزاقی - آیه along with that stuff on the drums is a great lesson in playing tastefully, staying in the pocket at quiet volume, keeping solid time and otherwise staying the hell out of the way.
There's a million of 'em. If you ever want to get your shuffle grooves together, that's how you do it. I've also been listening to Junior Kimbrough recently because Dan Auerbach of the black keys cited him as a major influence and its great to fill out my knowledge of the blues scene a bit more.
