    Any trio.
  4. Bill Evans with Scott LaFaro and or Eddie Gomez are pretty amazing, there's also a great duo album with - guitarist- Jim Hall and Evans called 'Undercurrent' that is wonderful, I'm not so sure about Jarrett arounf this period but most of his ECM group albums are worth getting - also Miles' classic Quintet with Tony Williams, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter and Herbie is incredible - also if you can find some Herbie did some awesome stuff too...but don't let the 60s be your only era for gawd's sake. Sonny Rollins would be another logical starting point.

    Here are some suggestions for the period 1955-1965:

    You can't really go too far wrong with any Blue Note releases from the 50s and 60s.

    EDIT: Not sure why you're only interested in 60s trios, but Chick Corea's 'Now He Sings, Now He Sobs' is a classic.
  6. I idn't check that list out, so I don't know if any of Oscar Peterson's trios are in it... especially those with Ray Brown.

    Nor do I know if Ramsey Lewis' trio is there. They were kind of a crossover act before crossover even existed-- check out their famous version of The In Crowd.

    OK, I went to the list, finally-- and didn't see either Oscar or Ramsey. So there you go. Mind you those records on that list are also must-haves.

    Ermmm...how exactly does that qualify as a trio!!?? ;)

    Ahmad Jamal trio - classic!

    I also like Horace Silver's trios - although he is obviously more famous for bands with two horns!
  9. The bonus cuts on the CD are really nice. I really liked the uptempo version of "Pannonica" and their version of "My One and Only Love" with a very understated melody.

    Well...that's what the original poster asked !! He may have some very good and valid reasons - like his CD collection is short in this area, although he has lots of quintets,quartets etc. ? He may be playing in a trio and wants to get that 60s vibe... ?

    Trio gigs I go to at Brighton Jazz club are very different from quartets and quintets....

    Could be any number of reasons!! :)
  11. Duke Ellington- Money Jungle (w/ Mingus and Roach)

    Ahmad Jamal is one of my favorites. I just never tire of his work.
    Also, what about Andre Previn? Didn't he have jazz trios or quartets in the sixties or did his jazz work come in the 70s?
