Hello. Tongue

Looking for some heavy Piano and Bass usage jazz.
Any sub-genre that fits this generic aspect is welcome.
Especially Avant - influenced. 

Thanks.

I think that I can listen to an initial work of ECM though I am not a specialist of complete AG Jazz. Performance of Paul Bley and Barre Phillips. Or, "Free at Last" of Mal Waldron is heavy piano and bass.

Hey Horizons!
Perhaps Bill Evans in a trio setting, piano, drums and bass.
My fav of his is 'Everybody Digs Bill Evans' which was recorded just before he did Kind of Blue with Davis, so it's more of a cool sound with some harder bop and not avant, so it might not be quite what you're after.

I'll keep working on a suggestion (and i bet someone else here will come through for you while I'm still thinking!)

EDIT: Like Kazuhiro! Smile

Thanks for the suggestions!

Roberts, that was a great suggestion. The song Minority captured my attention instantly. Perfect. Handshake

Do you know anything like this but more upbeat?

All piano trios pretty much.

By definitiion, bass and piano are 2/3 of the ensemble.

Oscar Peterson, although his work is not avant, is much more bop. Nevertheless, he had a great bass player, I can't remember his last name, but the first was Niels

My pleasure! Will keep thinking. Perhaps Hiromi Uehara? Though you might know her from PA?

I second that recommendation
Thirded... and I have to recommend the bad plus one more time and add Mouse On The Keys if you're already aware of TBP
 
I also second Now He Sings Now He Sobs, an excellent piano driven album

Hi,
 
Not sure I should not be adding anything that has Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke ... and some of those pieces are not only heavy, but quite weightless ...
... And then one day, the prophet said that you and I would know what is art ... and real!

Anything by Esbjörn Svensson Trio. You won't go wrong with Tuesday Wonderland, Live in Hamburg or Viaticum.

That's Kenny G with Miles Davis on my avatar, by the way.
