4.0 out of 5 stars A welcome re-issue of some fine albums, 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Three Classic Albums Plus (Junior / The Soulful Piano Of Junior Mance / At The Village Vanguard) (Audio CD)
Alongside of Ray Bryant, Mose Allison & Les McCann, Junior Mance was a post bop pianist with a heavily gospel influenced style who was popular in the late fifties and early sixties. These reissues of his trio work from this period are welcome as they have previously only been available on "collectible" vinyl at great cost. He also composed much of the music here and "Jubilation" was also recorded by Art Farmer on "Modern Art" - a record that was awarded 5 stars by Downbeat in 1958. I first heard his music on a BBC radio programme at this time and his style quickly became a favourite of mine but I was never lucky enough to own the records. Two full CDs are probably too much of the same thing to take in all at once but at this price who is complaining?

Well done Avid.
