5.0 out of 5 stars Genius at Work 1 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to Philippe Saisse for 20 ish years. Valerian was kind of the sound track to my late teens. As far as I'm concerned he's never played a bum note.
This album is yet another masterpiece. If you like jazz then just buy it. Then when you've listened to it non stop for maybe 4 or 5 weeks, you'll need to buy all his other albums. None of which, incidentally, distort in any way whatsoever. Albums these days are produced to the highest standard that technology will allow. One of the reviewers here needs to buy some new hi fi gear cos I've had this album real loud and all I can hear is 3 world class musicians doing what they do best. And long may it continue.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best kept secret in jazz.. 30 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I havn't been moved to write a review for any other artist in the 30 odd years I have been listening to jazz...
This isnt as much a review of the 'Body and Soul sessions' as it is for all of his music.
If you want musical sophistication, harmonic beauty, amazing technique, stunning compositions etc etc.... BUY ALL OF HIS CD's !!
The 'Body and Soul Sessions' is another gem in a fantastic catalogue of quality, excellently produced music.
Cant wait for the next one !

2.0 out of 5 stars Great tunes. Poor quality recordings 11 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
Some great Pop and Soul tunes given a jazz makeover.

I quite like the style of Philippe's playing and I recognise most of the tunes on the album. My favourite being the Earth Wind & Fire classic, September.

But... and it is a big But.

The album is let down by poor recording quality. All the tracks sound distorted, as if someone has turned up the volume on their tranny just a little too high. This ruins what could possible have been a four or five star album.

Being a hi-fi type person and owning a quality hi-fi system, I find this quite important. I played the album to my girlfriend who imdediately pointed out the distortion as being quite obvious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Destined to become a classic 25 April 2006
By R. stauffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Do It Again as I was driving in Orange Co., California. It was played by on-air personality Dave Koz. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. IMHO this track is destined to be a jazz classic. This was the best jazz track I have heard in a LONG time. The PS Trio plays with a joyful exuberance that we haven't heard since the late great Vince Guaraldi. These guys sound as if they are having a blast playing - which of course they are. Every track is a treat. Sharp, clean, and precise on each of the 12 songs. If you appeciate great jazz played by extremely talented musicians then this CD is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 31 May 2006
By CEdward - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a magnificent jazz CD, both artistically and technically. I have been a Philippe fan for about 5 years, with this being the third of his albums that I've purchased. I have always admired his eclectic blend of songs on each CD. This one is a bit more consistent, yet is remarkably fresh, with incredible phase shifts within some of the songs--a Philippe trademark in my opinion.

Don't let the "Trio" moniker fool you--the efforts on this CD skillfully punch out contemporary grooves, without betraying the trio instrumentation!! I was playing it in the car (by the way, sounds veerry nice on my Mark Levinson system), and I even caught my adolescent son bobbing his head and tapping his feet while listening to it.

I could rave on all day, but this CD is better experienced than discussed. You won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Craftsmanship at its Finest! 19 Mar 2007
By Jeffrey E. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have hundreds of CDs, and dozens of cool jazz, but ONE favorite--"Body and Soul Sessions"! The craftsmanship these three players exhibit on this album is of the highest caliber, and if you listen to just three tracks, "Do It Again", "September", and "Lovely Day", you will find all of the inspiration you need for a day! Philippe's inspired playing of both acoustic AND Fender Rhodes pianos illustrates the reason he is a much sought after session player; David Finck's acoustic bass performances comprise a study in precision and artisanship, and almost excruciatingly perfect playing; Scoota Warner's flexibility, and his ability to adapt to wherever the others take the song, makes him a more than worthy complement to their musicality (my favorite phrase of the entire album is the final few measures of "September", where Philippe breaks into a Latin flavor, and Scoota switches from the rim of the snare drum to full snare; that sound adds so much to what the other two are playing that it is almost a percussionist's "triumph".

Please try this album; if you love cool jazz, you will find something you like!

5.0 out of 5 stars A musical masterpiece! 25 Aug 2006
By Mr. Andrew Myers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A truly top class album topped-off by the first track "do it again" - for me one of the best smooth jazz tracks I have ever heard.

An absolute must for any contemporary jazz fans across the world
