TOP 500 REVIEWERon 13 June 2010
This is a great boxed set. The three albums are all unique in their own way.

Conference de press features Michel Petrucciani on Piano and Eddy Louis on Hammond Organ. No drummers or bass players. You might think this would be an odd combination but actually its quite brilliant. The two musicians spark off each other and there are numerous highlights. Recorded in 1994 it has a mix of standards and originals.

Both Worlds is unusual in that it is a sextet recording. So Petrucciani's natural flamboyance is restrained to some degree and the other musicians get a chance to shine as well. Bob Brookmeyer is on Trombone, Flavio Boltro on Trumpet and Stefano De Battista on Saxes. The rhythm section is Steve Gadd and Anthony Jackson as on the live in Tokyo album. My only criticism is that for my taste its a little over produced. That aside strongly recommended.

Trio in Tokyo was the first Petrucciani album I bought on the strength of a glowing newspaper review. Gadd and Jackson are a little more rocky/funky than some may like from a Jazz Piano trio but there is something quite magical about this album for me. Perhaps the highpoint is 'Cantabile'. A bluesy tune with a solo that builds and builds to a fantastic climax.

No hesitation in giving this boxed set ***** stars.
