Thanks for all the tips on classical. I'll go out and look for some of those mentioned. (Keep the ideas coming)

I also love the sound of a big tall upright bass played with piano. What are some suggestions here? I LOVE the music from "The Peanuts" - Vince Guaraldi Trio...any more suggestions like that?

I gotta go with Dave Brubeck. Time Out and Time Further Out are incredible albums. The recording quality is (obviously) not great, since they were recorded in the 50s (?), but the music is fantastic. Also, see him in concert if you have the opportunity. At 84, he's still really, really good.

Here's a winner for you: Jacques Loussier Trio.

He's a great jazz pianist who reinterprets classical music. It's just him, a bassist, and a drummer. Awesome stuff and well recorded, too.

Thanks for the tip...I'm downloading some mp3's now. I like what I hear so far. I'll have to go looking for a cd.

Three that come to mind immediately:

Bill Evans Trio, "Live at the Village Vanguard"
Bill Evans Trio, "Waltz for Debbie"
John Pizzarelli/The George Shearing Quintet, "The Rare Delight of You"

Get some Patricia Barber albums.
get some Bill Frissell
get some Jesse Cook
get the Stan Getz / Joao Gilberto album with Jobim. it's ridiculously good.
Yeah, Dave Brubeck - time out is real good.
if you want something new, get Si Se.

Another tip: If you want some straight-up jazz that's highly listenable, look for a McCoy Tyner (piano) with Stanley Clarke (bass) CD. I had the privilege of seeing them together live at (the world-famous) Yoshi's Jazz Club in Oakland. Awesome show.

Also, if you're in the mood for a more modern sound, give Charlie Hunter a try. He plays an 8-string bass and it sounds like he has 8 hands, too!

Earl Klugh Trio, as well.

I prefer my jazz with a little beat and sometimes some funk.
How about:
The Dirty Dozen
Stanley Clarke "Bass-ic Collection"
David Sanborn "Songs From the Night Before" (not very funky).
Miles Davis "Love Songs" (also not very funky).

I LOVE the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. I have four or five of of their albums already. Great fun stuff!

I'll start hunting around for some of these other suggestions. Thanks everyone.

Try Big Phat Band, a DVD-A, DTS, DD DVD from Gordin Goodwin (not sure of that spelling). Really good big band style, jazzed up a bit. I love the 5.1 DTS track that puts you in the center of the stage. Two channel purists please don't flame me, I'm too old. Besides, 2-channel stereo is included, but I prefer the 5.1.
