Although I did play jazz in school during my earlier years, I wouldn't qualify as an expert on jazz hardware, so take my suggestions with a grain of salt!

The first thing i'll say is that jazz has more to do with the cymbals than the drums. Make sure you test each and every cymbal you are thinking about grabbing, before you purchase. But as for the shells...

For that budget, you have a few options. My first suggestion would be to look into the DW performance kit. I haven't sat down at this kit for any length of time, but it is there entry level series and appears to have solid quality, similar to what you might find with their higher end kits like the collectors editions. Another kit I've hear some people talking about lately is the Sonor Bop series, targeted at Jazz drummers for under a grand!
