Personally I like Bill Evans work from the sixties best, I don't react well to electronic bass in Jazz trio's..
Also Explorations and Undercurrent (with gitarist Jim Hall) is very good IMO if you like sax, the album with Cannonball Aderley ('Know What I Mean') is very good..
There are relative cheap (verbatim) cd boxes of all the complete Riverside (15 cd's) /and Verve recordings (18 cd's) which are all great..
... and 'Everybody Diggs Bill Evans' of course..
