    If I was going to recommend something to somebody who mainly listened to traditional jazz, it might be Paul Motian's "On Broadway" Vol. 1-3, or the similar Motian "Bill Evans" tribute (or the Monk tribute)--all from 1988-1991.
    They are cool, and Bill's playing is mostly cool there.
    I also love Paul Motian's very melodious drum playing...

    but on the other hand I do not dig bassless trios with drums (not all these records are bassless but many I guess?)... I'd rather choose drumless group with bass.

    and I do not like drums per se when they become to prominent... I guess I just do not hear them well.

    Though Paul is one of those who can make it convincing even for such drum-deaf people like me..

    but still at some point it feel like to much of drums there for me

    Only the Monk tribute lacks a bass player, iirc.

    The Broadway 1-3 series has Charlie Haden, and the Bill Evans has Marc Johnson. They all have Joe Lovano as a featured soloist.

    Thanks O remembered there was Charlie Hadeb and Joe Lovano ... as for baseless.. I probably mixed it a bit with other Bill's works with Paul... they played a lot in baseless trio with Lovano

    A new video for 'We Shall Overcome' from Bill's forthcoming album, 'Valentine'. The animation is by Bill's daughter Monica, a great photographer.

    I thought it was time to keep this thread up to date!

    I mentioned back in post #4 a duo recording with bassist Skúli Sverrisson. Originally released in 2018 as part of Newvelle Records' Season 3 subscription box set, it made available last month in high-quality digital formats at Bandcamp.

    I was fortunate to get a vinyl copy when Newvelle briefly made individual albums available for purchase for Record Store Day. It's great to have the music more widely available. It's a beautiful and thoughtful session.

    Released in February 2020 and completely under my radar until a few minute is another recording by the acoustic guitar trio of Bill Frisell, Julian Lage and Gavin Riley - 'Virtue', again on Tzadik.

    Also under my radar was the October 2020 release of Ron Miles' debut on Blue Note, 'Radio Sign'. A quintet with Bill Frisell, Jason Moran, Thomas Morgan and Brian Blade.

    There was also a new John Zorn feat. Bill Frisell, Gyan Riley & Julian Lage earlier this month on Tzadik: Parables

    And back in January, John Zorn- Gnosis: The Inner Light feat. Bill Frisell, John Medeski, Kenny Wollesen & Carol Emanuel. Excellent. The same overall spirit as the numerous earlier Gnostic albums, but with additional Morricone-esque undertones.

    OT, but probably worth noting for those interested in the above albums: Tzadik also announces a New Masada Quartet album with Zorn, Julian Lage, Jorge Roeder and Kenny Wollesen, as well as a Miles Okazaki / Dan Weiss / Trever Dunn album. Both should be released in October.

    I do not know how much of him can be heard, but Bill Frisell appears on the upcoming posthumous Lyle Mays EP Eberhard.
    The single 13min track will be released on 27 August.
