Product Description

AVID Jazz here presents four classic (and hard to find or expensive) Kenny Drew albums including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. 'Introducing Kenny Drew'; 'This Is New'; 'Talkin & Walkin' and 'Jazz Impressions of Rodgers & Hart - Pal Joey'. Perhaps unfairly overlooked in a crowded field of great jazz pianists around during his time from Monk, Bud Powell, Horace Silver to Wynton Kelly, Kenny Drew finally got to record this his first album in 1953. Having established himself at last through playing with the likes of Coleman Hawkins, Stan Getz and Lester Young he and his fine quartet were finally on their way and touring through 1952 and 1953. Here he is joined on 'Introducing Kenny Drew' by Curly Russell on bass and the inimitable powerhouse Art Blakey on drums. For 'This Is New' recorded through March and April 1957, Kenny's reputation was now reflected in the band members he was attracting. Here we find him in the company of Donald Byrd on trumpet, Hank Mobley on tenor, Wilbur Ware on bass and G.T.Hogan on drums. This is current jazz, played by young musicians with considerable experience in the post or hard bop school coming up via the influence of Bird, Dizzy and Monk. 'Talkin & Walkin' features the Kenny Drew Quartet from 1955 with Joe Maini on alto and tenor, Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Lawrence Marable on drums. The message here is one of simplicity……………keep it relaxed and natural, honest and unselfconscious. Finally 'Jazz Impressions of Rodgers & Hart - Pal Joey' a trio recording from New York in 1957 with Wilbur Ware on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums. Here Drew takes five selections from the original Broadway show and adds three more Rodgers & Hart classics from the movie version to create 'extremely meaty and rewarding material to work with'. All four albums are plus have been digitally re-mastered. Some are also currently hard to find or expensive, so Avid are pleased to be able to make them available once again.

Format: Audio CD
This compilation begins with the pianist's 1953 Blue Note album "New Faces, New Sounds", on which he was accompanied by Curly Russell on bass & Art Blakey on drums. A quartet including Joe Maini on alto & tenor, Leroy Vinnegar on bass & Lawrence Marable on drums recorded the late 1955 Capitol LP "Talkin' & Walkin'". Two 1957 Riverside albums complete the selection. "This is New" included Hank Mobley on tenor (first three numbers only) Donald Byrd on trumpet, Wilbur Ware on bass & G.T. Hogan on drums, and "Jazz Impressions of Pal Joey" retained Wilbur Ware on bass and imported Philly Joe Jones on drums. Drew was seen at the time as a modernist, but its clear that his approach was influenced as much by Teddy Wilson and Art Tatum as Mel Powell, and that he was very much his own man. His style ranged between single-note melodic lines and complex chordal patterns, and my own preference is for the two trio-based albums, where his approach was unfettered by the role of accompanist. Sound quality is excellent throughout.

If you like bebop piano then you should enjoy this 2 CD set. The trio tracks where Drew sounds most Powellish are, in my opinion, the best, but there's lots of good music here.
