Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.com
This album ranks there with the most brilliant piano performances in jazz, and I would prefer it to Bill Evans' Village Vanguard concerts.
Besides the music, the sound quality of the recording is very very good.
If you are a jazz piano aficionado, it will make your life more pleasant.
Sound samples on this page convey the power of the studio performances. Not only are the musicians in excellent form, but the recording itself is clear and captures not only the sound, but somehow manages to record the spirit and energy of the session.
What is interesting - to me - is the tracks that were selected. Monk's compositions are well represented with 52nd Street Theme, Straight No Chaser and - obliquely with Rifftide. The latter has a history behind it that is tied to Monk's Hackensack. I will discuss that in a comment to this review to keep it on focus. Ruby My Dear was recorded during this session, but did not make it to the album.
Aside from Monk, the bebop-influenced theme is continued with Tadd Dameron's Hot House, Bud's own composition - Bouncing With Bud - and Denziel Best's composition Move. Benny Golson's tribute to Clifford Brown, I Remember Clifford, is a beautiful and sentimental piece that I have always loved. Bud and his other trio members did it the justice that it deserved. Although Irving Berlin's The Best Thing For You is an odd track given the other songs, it fit the album's theme perfectly.
Wrapping up, this is one more piece of evidence that Bud was in full command of his powers as late as 1963. One of the highlights on this album is Pedersen's bass work, which adds a dimension to this album that should be studied by every bassist (and drummer) for how to create a pulse and mood that elevates the music. I'll place a short piece about the Rifftide-Hackensack connection in a comment below.
