drums and bass. Sometimes these were pickup affairs, but some, most prominently Ahmad Jamal, Peterson, and then Bill Evans, have chosen this type of trio for their work. The challenge has been to make it more than just a piano with accompaniment — to create a unique trio voice. In the late 1950s Evans, in tandem with some remarkable bass players, created the ideal modern jazz piano group, influential as much for his general musical conception as for his instrumental style. Among the latter-day descendants of Evans we must count Lynne Arriale.

Arriale came to jazz late. She started her career as a classical pianist, but after graduating from the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music she turned her attention to improvised music and quickly made her mark, winning a prestigious jazz piano competition and touring in Japan with some of the finest keyboard artists in the music. In 1993 she released her first trio recording, and a decade and seven more albums later, she has established herself as one of the top mainstream pianists in jazz.
