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...
I agree with you all the way about Kind of Blue. I heard this years ago at a friend's house, and I was impressed enough to buy it, even though I wasn't even a jazz fan at the time. It's one of those incredible discs that you can't help but love, regardless of your musical preferences.
Undercurrent does indeed sound like a beautiful disc. And what an album cover!
Sunday At The Village Vanguard sounds great as well... and I'll definitely do some research on that Tomasz Stanko disc. In fact there's a CD called Trio, by Stanko's band, that I'm gonna get -a piano, bass, drum combo that sounds awesome.
And The Necks do some really interesting long-form jazzy type stuff that apparently gets quite hypnotic, judging from the MP3s and reviews...
Thanks for the suggestions, guys!
The jazz discs that really have me going now are:
Vassilis Tsabropoulos- Achirana; Breathtaking!
Arild Andersen, with Vassilis Tsabropoulos- The Triangle; almost as good
Tord Gustavsen Trio- Being There; very nice, but a bit too much structure for my preference.
