Album Review

This CD was recorded live at the Greenwich Village bar that, for 25 years, showcased the best jazz pianists in the world. The atmosphere was relaxed and intimate, the audience hip and respectful; this collection reflects that history as it reveals three veteran masters at their best. Here are extended explorations of five varied tunes, featuring the elegant fluidity of Kenny Barron's piano, the fat sound and ever-swinging pulse of Ray Drummond's bass, and the superb intricacy of Ben Riley on drums. The session opens with Exhibit A of how to sustain 15 minutes of eager interest in a simple Tin Pan Alley ditty, "Everybody Loves My Baby." This is followed by a bebop burner on Miles Davis' "Solar," a beautiful "Blue Moon," and a silken take on James Williams' haunting "Alter Ego." The longest track is that old warhorse "Canadian Sunset," where Barron's graceful touch and playfulness — and the trio's mutual inspiration — completely banish the usual cowpoke plodding associated with this tune and really make it kick. This is an excellent CD full of serenely joyful energy, and it reveals new layers of delight with each spin.

More than 40 albums have appeared under his name, and his presence on literally hundreds of recordings by other musicians paints a panoramic picture of Barron's lifelong devotion to the music....
