Okay, my choice is "The Complete Bill Evans Trio at the Village Vanguard". This one seems to get raves everywhere you read. I would've started with "Sunday at the Village Vanguard", but the prices for that are:

Eluvium- Talk Amongst the Trees; What a great disc, especially "New Animals From the Air" (sounds like a beautiful & slow moving merry-go-round), and "Calm of the Cast-Light Cloud".
Hey, Joe. Talk Amongst the Trees is my fave Eluvium too. I know others here who prefer Copia, but I found that release a little over-precious with all its post-classicisms (a bit like how I feel about SotL's drift from their early-mid period to their more recent post-orchestralisms), and though Copia's a nice enough disc, I prefer the grittier more particulate textures of TAtT.
If you don't have Miles Davis' Kind of Blue... Evans is playing piano on most tracks and, wow, you need this album. And it's only $8 on Amazon...
That does it. I have to check that out!
I think a quick glance at the paltry new offerings in the jazz sections of the world pretty much spells it out!
Bohren & Der Club of Gore - DaumenSunset Mission is the love of my life. really. there is nothing that comes
Still one of my all time favourite bands. Really relaxing stuff. Not as dark and haunting as Black Earth. For the ones that are not familiar with Bohren: they play a very, very slow style of jazz. It could be called the 'funeral doom of jazz'. Recommended to everyone!
close to this beauty. i adore it. if i had to choose one CD that i would
need my whole life, then i would pick the Sunset Mission.
But i would rather call the music "ruhr bar doom jazz".
Release the Pink Umlauts! הצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצהצ
