I think you mean trios. Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson ususally worked in a trio format. Peterson's fifties trio substituted guitar for drums as did Nat King Cole's and Art Tatum's before.

For some stranger stuff, check out the Paul Motion Trio. Bill Evans is also great.

Check out something by Bill Evans and his first trio, which included Scott LaFaro on bass and Paul Motian on drums.
