|THE INTEGRAL VEE JAY STUDIO WORKS OF ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING PIANO TRIOS !!!
FEATURING PAUL CHAMBERS, SAM JONES, JIMMY COBB & PHILLY JOE JONES. INCLUDES ALL THE MASTER & ALTERNATE TAKES.
This release contains the complete Vee-Jay studio
recordings by the Wynton Kelly trio for the first time
ever on one edition. The Wynton Kelly heard here
(from the period 1959-1961), as the original liner
notes clearly state, was at the peak of his fruitful
collaboration with Miles Davis, with Paul Chambers,
Jimmy Cobb and the inimitable John Coltrane filling
out the celebrated quintet. So it is truly interesting
to hear Kelly as the main performer, displaying his
own personality and even playing some of his own
WYNTON KELLY, piano on all tracks, plus:
