Tracing the historic path of this particular trio type--saxophone, bass and drums, no chordal instrument--leads back to saxophonist Sonny Rollins' A Night At The Village Vanguard (Blue Note, 1958). The sound on that seminal recording is raw, rough around the edges, with the trio bumping through a bunch of familiar tunes, enjoying the freedom from chords. ...
