I've been getting into a lot of modern jazz stuff lately. Any good trios?

The Claudia Quintet are pretty good. Not always pure jazz, but I like 'em. NPR link for more info on their album 'Royal Toast' (hope this doesn't seem like an ad):

The Cowboy Killers play delta and piedmont blues in a ****ing brilliant way. Not modern jazz though ¬_¬ but the titles includes blues so >_>>>>>

Radio Moscow are a blues rock trio. Very good.

John Butler Trio. Not blues/jazz but an awesome trio.

Radio Moscow is an awesome blues-rock prychadelic trio. Like imagine if Led Zeppelin and Cream gave birth to a child. It would be Radio Moscow.

Oh Moreland & Arbuckle is a great blues roots trio.

North Mississippi Allstars.


Haha Frank is the new bassist for The Black Keys

John Pizzarelli Trio is fantastic. Also, Bucky Pizzarelli is a wonderful jazz guitarist.

define "modern jazz" and i can help a little more. seems some people mean different things by it.

until then, here are some general trio albums i'd recommend:

bill evans trio - sunday at the village vanguard
bill evans trio - waltz for debby
oscar peterson trio - night train
ray brown trio - bassics: the best of the ray brown trio
branford marsalis - dark keys

You're definitely a Scott LaFaro freak, aren't you?


TS I would check out some of Bill Frisell latest albums, he's great. Also, any of Pat Metheny's trio albums too. Oh yeah, can't forget the "Trio of Doom", McLaughlin, Pastorius and Williams.

Time and the Infinite - Adam Rogers Trio

The song Elegy to me is the highlight of the album.

i'm definitely a lafaroholic. although i've been on a big sam jones kick lately and i've finally given into post-fifths tuning red mitchell. got to say his bass sounds awesome to say the least. years down the road hopefully i can invest in another plywood and set it up like his.
