Obscure, classy, sophisticated jazz band

Music connoisseurs, I need your help!

Setting: London, 2004.
Searched: browsed the 'music' tag, but don't really know how to google this. Sorry.

I'm looking for a band that is really left-field/far-out, technically proficient and virtually unknown in the UK (or anywhere else, for that matter). I was thinking along the lines of an instrumental jazz band. Or it may be electronica/IDM - they all suit the characters' background, but I reckoned jazz would sit better with that nice mental image of a subsequently dug-up vinyl LP.
My chappie A works in an indie record shop, and it's going to be a bit of a bonding thing between him and chappie B, in style of "I thought I was the only person who knows who they are!". The thing is, the guys are both professional musicians, so it takes more than fleeting hipster credibility for them to like a record.

I know that I'm venturing out onto a highly subjective ground here, but hopefully someone can throw some names my way. I could of course invent a name, but I guess it just wouldn't be the same.

A humbly doffed hat to you in advance.

ETA: Wow! Thank you so much guys!
