Michel Petrucciani, Anthony Jackson & Steve Gadd: Trio In Tokyo Recorded in 1997, this CD features the late Michel Petrucciani on piano, drummer extraordinaire Steve Gadd and bassist Anthony Jackson in a performance from the Blue Note in Tokyo.

One listen to Trio In Tokyo and it is apparent that this is Petrucciani's group. The diminutive pianist leads while Gadd and Jackson provide a killer rhythm section. Petrucciani, who passed away in January 1999 was a truly gifted player who could bring listeners to tears with his inventive strokes (an example would be the tune "Home"). He was also a player who could swing and be extremely inventive. This is evidenced by the wonderful "A Little Piece In C for U."

Trio In Tokyo also lets the listener hear studio stalwarts Gadd and Jackson in a live setting. Often thought of as "studio technicians," these two veteran jazzmen really shine on this recording.

Don't miss this one. It's a rare gem that can never be replicated!
