A few more favorite Jimmy Cleveland solos:
If You Could See Me Now (from Gil Evans & 10)
Las Vegas Tango (The Individualism of Gil Evans)
The Kerry Dancer (Gigi Gryce: Nica's Tempo)
NR #2 (Lucky Thompson: Tricotism)
I also like the 1955 recordings that Doug referred to, reissued as "Introducing Jimmy Cleveland"
