I second Sbanks choice of The Bill Evans Trio "Sunday At The Village Vangard" and add one recorded in 1965. "Hang On Ramsey" The Ramsey Lewis Trio.You can hear the ice hitting the glass and almost smell the aroma of Dewars.The enthusiastic patrons outbursts add to the occasion.Plus The Trio's performance of "Satin Doll" will make Duke Smile
This era of jazz is my favorite and I think many of these titles would fit your needs (in no particular order).
Horace Silver - Song For My Father
Gerry Mulligan - Quartet with Chet Baker
Hank Mobley - The Turnaround
Grant Green - Feelin' The Spirit
Sonny Clark - Cool Struttin'
Webster Young - For Lady
Sonny Rollins - Saxophone Colossus
Oscar Peterson - Night Train
Miles Davis - Round Midnight
This thread inspires me to mention that everyone here should watch the documentary
"History of Blue Note: The Alfred Lion Story",
it is often rerun on the Ovation cable network, and is also available to rent. Most of the musicians on this thread are mentioned or featured in this tremendous video. Cheers,
