The Piano Scene of Dave McKenna: The Complete 1958 Recordings
Dave McKenna (p), Osie Johnson (d), John Drew (b)
One of the most underrated pianists in jazz, this release features Dave McKenna's complete July 22 & 23, 1958 New York studio recordings, which includes the complete Epic LP The Piano Sound Of Dave McKenna as well as the eight alternate takes recorded for the sessions.
These sessions mark McKenna's second release as a leader and his first in the trio format. In fact, the July 22 & 23 date with the outstanding bassist John Drew and drum giant Osie Johnson marks one of only two separate studio sessions that McKenna recorded as a leader in the classic piano trio format, making this edition all the more valuable.
