All of the music recorded by Tommy Flanagan during his first session as a leader, fronting an all-star trio with Wilbur Little and Elvin Jones.

The session, recorded in Sweden in 1957, was first issued on the local label Metronome and later appeared on Prestige as Overseas (Prestige LP7134).

These seminal recordings were made while Flanagan, Little, and Jones were touring Europe as part of the J.J. Johnson Quartet.

All existing alternate takes have been added to the nine masters from the session. As a bonus, we have added the only trio tracks from two quartet albums with Flanagan, one of which presents the same trio featured on Overseas.

All previous editions of this session presented three apparent alternate takes, which were actually exact copies of the master takes. All of the six alternate takes included here have been carefully examined and are clearly different from the masters. Includes 16-page booklet.

This 1957 trio session taped in Sweden marked Flanagan’s first album as a leader. Albums prior to his first trio recordings include collaborations with Kenny Burrell, Thad Jones, Miles Davis, Kenny Clarke, Sahib Shihab, Oscar Pettiford, Phil Woods, Sonny Rollins, Bobby Jaspar, Donald Byrd, J.J. Johnson (with whom he was touring –along with Wilbur Little and Elvin Jones – when these recordings were made), Cecil Payne, Herbie Mann and, last but not least, John Coltrane. These collaborations produced essential jazz albums like Rollins’ Saxophone Colossus and Miles’ Collector’s Items. The quantity of important works for such a young and still relatively-unknown pianist gives testimony to Flanagan’s enormous talents as well as his reliability as a musician. His initial trio LP gives proof of Flanagan’s musical depth, showing that he wasn’t just a pianist but also a solid composer. Overseas was also Flanagan’s first recording in Europe, and the only one made “overseas” for a considerable amount of time.
