    Welcome aboard Ben (I like your non-de-plume, so brief),
    I hadn't heard of your two mentioned groups, but a quick check on Spotify allowed me to confirm they are piano trios you are talking about.
    I found The Bad Lot more agreeable to my taste than the others though they probably wont grow on me.
    As for similar types, I'm not sure any come to mind (they are very "modern" and that is not always a good term to oldtimers like me)
    The closest I can get is Theloneous Monk.

    Cheers John

    Thanks guys I'll give them a listen, also discovered a band called trichotomy, on the same label as Neil Cowley Trio. Similar sort of thing, which I must admit I'm quite partial to. Ben

    Hi Ben and welcome, I can't make out if you are a musician or a listener

    Mainly a listener, I've played a bit of guitar and smidge of drums in my younger days, but that was in the indie rock type genre. Probably first got excited by jazz when I heard unusual covers of songs well known to me, I was interested in the many manys that the music could be taken. I envy jazz musicians, who seem to be able to make the near impossible seem easy, especially when it comes to drumming.
