Love, Gloom, Cash, Love (Bethlehem, 1957)

Some of the most exciting piano jazz ever recorded -- featured here on all of the Blue Note and Bethlehem recordings by the Herbie Nichols Trio! Nichols' heavy handed style is amazing throughout, and the record explodes with energy unheard of on other trio sessions from the time! The first 2/3 of the CD feature material from Nichols' Prophetic Herbie Nichols 10" albums on Blue Note -- recorded in 1955, and featuring either Max Roach or Art Blakey backing Herbie up -- on titles that include "Chit Chatting", "The Gig", "Terpsichore", "Spinning Song", "Mine", "House Party Starting", "Hangover Triangle", and "Query". Next up is material from the album Love Gloom Cash Love -- Herbie's only one for Bethelehem -- but stands nicely next to his better-known sides for Blue Note. The sound is similar to those, with a sharp and edgey approach -- and an incredible sense of invention that pushes the work far past any expectations you might have! Contains 3 bonus tracks that feature a quartet with guitarist Danny Barker.
