Reseña de álbum

Trio and Solo is an appropriate title for this LP, which finds a young Randy Weston leading a trio on five selections and performing unaccompanied solo piano on the other five. The trio material (which employs Sam Gill on bass and the influential Art Blakey on drums) was recorded in 1955, whereas most of the solo performances were recorded the following year. In both settings, Weston brings a strong Thelonious Monk influence to the table — the Monk influence is impossible to miss, whether Weston is embracing "Little Girl Blue" and Tadd Dameron's "If You Could See Me Now" by himself or interpreting "Sweet Sue, Just You" in the company of Gill and Blakey. But being greatly influenced by someone doesn't mean that you're a slavish, knee-jerk imitator. Just as Sonny Stitt realized that being a Charlie Parker disciple didn't have to mean being a Charlie Parker clone — and just as Chet Baker had a recognizable tone that you could tell from Miles Davis' — Weston never tried to pass himself off as Monk. Yes, Monk was his greatest influence in 1955 and 1956, but his sound also owed something to Bud Powell. And what you hear on this bop-oriented record is a young improviser who loved and admired Monk's angular, cerebral pianism, but also realized the importance of being his own person. You also hear a flexible musician who was open to a variety of musical situations; Weston sounds as inspired by himself as he does in the company of Gill and Blakey. Trio and Solo isn't as essential as some of Weston's 1960s recordings, but for those who are devoted fans of the pianist, these early performances offer considerable rewards.

Placing Randy Weston into narrow, bop-derived categories only tells part of the story of this restless musician. Starting with the gospel of bop according to Thelonious Monk, Weston has gradually absorbed the letter and spirit of African and Caribbean rhythms and tunes, welding everything together into a searching, energizing, often celebratory blend. His piano work ranges across a profusion of styles...
