With Joe Henderson - Complete Recordings (2 CD set)
Wynton Kelly, Jimmy Cobb, Paul Chambers, Joe Henderson
This double CD set brings together all the material recorded by the Wynton Kelly Trio - with Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb - featuring Joe Henderson three days before the tenor saxophonist celebrated his 31st birthday in a memorable live performance in Baltimore.
The four protagonists of that magical night in 1968, who had never played together before, proved themselves to be full of inspiration, lyricism, expertise, and feeling, that established in the auditorium a rare and precious atmosphere of intimacy. Includes some of the most performed classic jazz standards of the modern jazz such as Autumn Leaves, Four, On Green Dolphin Street, Straight, No Chaser, What Is This Thing Called Love?, and others, plus outstanding versions of two great popular songs: Days of Wine and Roses and On a Clear Day.
Cannonball Adderley says about Wynton: The worlds greatest accompanist for a soloist.
