The Great Jazz Trio: 'S Wonderful

Read "'S Wonderful" reviewed by John Kelman

It's hard to believe that when he inaugurated the Great Jazz Trio in the mid-1970s, pianist Hank Jones was approaching sixty. At that point he'd already built a long, prestigious career working with virtually every significant mainstream jazz artist to emerge since the late 1930s. It's even more remarkable that, thirty years later, not only is ...

The Great Jazz Trio: At the Village Vanguard Again

Read "At the Village Vanguard Again" reviewed by John Kelman

For the third and final reissue of performances culled from the Great Jazz Trio's three-night Village Vanguard run in '77--previously only available as expensive vinyl imports on the Japanese East Wind label--pianist Hank Jones, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Tony Williams prove once again that standard material needn't imply standard delivery. The first two volumes--At the ...

The Great Jazz Trio: At the Village Vanguard Vol. 2

Read "At the Village Vanguard Vol. 2" reviewed by John Kelman

With Test of Time continuing its archival reissue series of '70s Inner City and East Wind label recordings previously only available as expensive Japanese imports, this is a great time to be thinking about taking out a second mortgage on the home. Previous releases, including titles by Andrew Hill, Sheila Jordan, and Art Farmer have been ...

The Great Jazz Trio: 'S Wonderful

Read "'S Wonderful" reviewed by Jim Santella

Generations keep things rolling, passing on information, and intangible qualities are soon absorbed. Hank Jones will turn 87 on July 31. Jack DeJohnette is 62. John Patitucci is 46. Each has a different frame of reference from which to draw upon when interpreting standards, such as those appearing here on 'S Wonderful. The swing and sway ...

The Great Jazz Trio: 'S Wonderful

Read "'S Wonderful" reviewed by Paul Olson

There's certainly no dearth of Hank Jones on CD this year. Whether as a leader on his new trio release, For My Father, or in central roles on the Thad Jones tribute album One More: Music of Thad Jones and Joe Lovano's Joyous Encounter, Jones has been cluttering up the record store jazz section. More power ...

The Great Jazz Trio: At the Village Vanguard

Read "At the Village Vanguard" reviewed by John Kelman

Pianist Hank Jones has been the only constant in the nearly thirty-year run of the Great Jazz Trio, but a stellar range of players have come and gone--including Jones' brother Elvin, Al Foster, and Jimmy Cobb on drums; and bassists Eddie Gomez, George Mraz, and Richard Davis. One of the most potent yet short-lived versions of ...

The Great Jazz Trio: Someday My Prince Will Come

Read "Someday My Prince Will Come" reviewed by Mark Sabbatini

When three guys with 130 years of experience collaborate on a set of oft-recorded tunes, certain things are expected. They'll be rock-solid and, if not the freshest sound going, still capable of some surprises. There won't be any nonsense or players who don't “get" what their colleagues are up to. Traditionalists will find something ...
