The Morris Nanton Trio: Forty-Eight Years of Musical Rapport

By

Sadly, it is unlikely any of these sessions will be reissued on CD anytime soon. Fantasy Records, owners of the Prestige catalog, has rebuffed Nanton's reissue inquiries and has turned down his offer to buy the session masters. You can hear Edge in a rare recorded sideman gig on Fantasy's OJC reissue of Gene Ammons's Bad Bossa. There is also the possibility Shanghai Jazz may release a live CD on their independent label, following up their first release by the Earl May Trio.

At least those in the New York-New Jersey area have the opportunity to hear the trio live. Forty-eight years of musical rapport and experience is worth the trip.

Discuss Morris Nanton's music on the AAJ Bulletin Board.
