Good response, Ed.  And what do you and others think of e.s.t. - the 
Esbjörn Svensson Trio - in this context? They are very big in Europe 
and have toured the US several times.  I've seen them a couple of times 
and I play their CDs frequently on my shows.

To my ears, they're a lot hipper, jazzwise, but still have a lot of 
appeal to younger audiences with their repertoire and live electronic 
augmentation of the traditional piano bass  & drums trio.  Their 
rhythmic approach relates well to pop music but it swings!  The Moutin 
Reunion Band is another group that might be considered.
