Yep, trusty is probably the best distro for host lxc right now.
Particularly if you also add ppa:ubuntu-lxc/lxc-stable to get
lxc-1.1.4 and lxcfs.

Privilged containers on jessie should work, although I'd still
recommend using lxc-1.1.x (either compile from source, or port
ubuntu's package recipe) instead of the bundled 1.0.6
