Looking for some good trio stuff. Any suggestions? I’m big on Bill Evans already, but would like hear some other good ones.

I second anything by Oscar Peterson trios and add Jacques Lousier trio for something very different .... I grew up with Benny Goodman Trio records and those are great too

Anything by Marcin Wasilewski.
Jakob Bro with Thomas Morgan and Joey Baron.
John Scofield with Steve Swallow and Bill Stewart.
Antonio Sanchez`s album Three Times Three.

GoGo Penguin and Phronesis are fun, too. Craig Taborn, Colin Vallon... too many to mention.

Brad Mehldau trio as already mentioned by @Drumprof above - especially 2012's Where Do You Start?

Also Elastic by Joshua Redman is sax, organ, drums - has jazz crimes on, bit of a classic. I love love love Brian Blade's playing on that album so much. It's at the funkier end of the jazz spectrum.

For something more meditative I'd recommend As It Is by the Peter Erskine Trio in ECM.

I would add the Vince Guaraldi Trio. Probably one of the first jazz trios I never knew I heard as a kid.
His stuff with Bolo Sete (guitar) is very good.
