If you can get by with 2 channels, try the Legacy. It has a very distinct clean channel that warms up very nicely for jazz, and the lead channel sings. I used my Legacy for a years worth of jazz gigs and really liked it.
If you want to step up to 3 channels, I'd recommend the Mark IV. It'll require a lot of tweaking, but the sheer number of options available (full/tweed, pentode/triode, class A/simulclass, switchable EQ) virtually guarantee you'll be able to find the tones you're looking for. I haven't had a jazz gig since I got the Mark IV, but I'll take it to our Feb. rehearsal and give it a good run there.
