Claude Williamson (piano), Duke Morgan (bass) and Chuck Flores (drums).
Recorded in Los Angeles, 1961
Produced for CD release by Jordi Pujol
The Fabulous Claude Williamson Trio captures the pianist in collaboration with bassist Duke Morgan and drummer Chuck Flores on a solid if unremarkable collection of standards. While Flores' subtle but insistent rhythms are particularly well matched to Williamson's graceful, feather-light touch, the session takes too few chances to soar -both the material and the arrangements are regrettably pedestrian. Aficionados of the postwar Los Angeles jazz scene will nevertheless appreciate the skill and dexterity of the performances- it's just a shame the album is nowhere near as fabulous as advertised.
