If you like your jazz bluesy and funky "This here is Bobby Timmons" is one cd you'll return to time and time again.
"This Here", "Dat Dere" and "Moanin" (the last famously recorded by Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers) were tunes so catchy Timmon's named them "the three elements of the plague" because audiences never tired of requesting them! They are all footstompingly good tunes, with a raw power and passion that sound as fresh and uncompromising today as they did 40 years ago. There is a selection of equally strong standards, "My Funny Valentine", "Come Rain or Come Shine", and "Lush Life" are all given Timmon's unique treatment. "Lush Life" in particular is an interpretation rich with instinctive melody, and while many Jazz soloists seem anxious to play the maximum number of notes, even if looses the listener, Timmons never plays an extraneous note. But it's not all sweat, on "Prelude to a kiss", and "My Funny Valentine" the melodies get all the space they deserve.
In short this is hard bop piano at its finest!

Horns...who needs them?! 6 Jun 2003
By "sranney22" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bobby Timmons one of the prime leaders of the soul jazz era wrote some of the finest pieces in that era, such as Dat Dere, This Here, and Moanin'. Most people only know of Bobby Timmons as a sideman Most people only know of Moanin' in the setting of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. Same as Dat Dere. This Here was written for Cannonball Adderley's Quintet, which Bobby was in, in San Francisco. But hey when you have a pianist like Bobby Timmons who needs those horns any way? This album demonstrates Bobby's talents to the full from standards and ballads like Lush Life to My Funny Valentine to his awesome pieces Dat Dere, Moanin', and This Here. This album truly shows Bobby, one of the finest soul jazz pianists, as a leader not a sideman and at his prime. Any one familiar with Dat Dere, Moanin', or This Here should definitely check this album out.

A fingersnapping milestone 25 Aug 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
That Bobby Timmons was a great composer, this album is the proof of. It contains the first versions of some of his greatest and most popular compositions: "this here", "dat dere" and "moanin'. It's one of those trio records, that swings like a whole orchestra, yet conveys such an intimate feeling of joy. This record is so contageous that your fingers will start snapping by the end of the first chord, you just wait and see. Essential soul jazz at its very best.

Stellar Release From The Bobby Timmons Trio 7 Dec 2008
By Transfigured Knight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This 1960 Riverside release stands as one of the best representations of a jazz piano trio in my opinion. "This Here Is Bobby Timmons" is by far one of the finest in its field, no doubt about it. From start to finish, this is a stellar album from Timmons. Sam Jones and Jimmy Cobb round out there trio and do a fantastic job. Jazz piano trio at its finest. Highly recommended.

Great pianist - great music 27 Jan 2014
By Lennart Brandt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love this music. It is from one of the best periods of the jazz history. I was lucky to be able to listen to this and other kinds of jazz music on the Voice of America Jazz Hour almost every evening during some years around 1960.
I study his left hand work on the theme of This Here. Quite impressing.
This Here Is Bobby Timmons, One Of My All Time Favorite Pianists 19 Jan 2014
By Leila C. Shapiro - Published on Amazon.com

In 1958 Bobby recorded My Funny Valentine as a duet with bassist Jymie Merritt on Art Blakey's Live In Zurich album, and in 1961 he recorded it solo on Blakey's Paris Olympia second concert. These are two of my favorite, most soulful piano renditions. While the version on this disc is wonderful, I much prefer the above two versions. However, anything you can add to your collection by this most underrated genius is a worthwhile addition. Dead at age 39, his passing was a terrible loss, and , so there will be no more This Heres(or Dis Heah, as it often was titled) making this collection important for your library. Sam Jones and Jimmy Cobb offer tender support.
