Paper Sleeve Limited Edition - Only 1,000 copies pressed!

A collection of previously unreleased materials by the Kenny Drew Trio, originally recorded for Japanese labels Baystate and Alpha beween 1972 and 1992, now released to commemmorate the 20th anniversary of his passing. A rich trove of superb piano trio performances!

American pianist Kenny Drew (1928-1993) moved to Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1964. Although he may have somewhat faded from the radar of American jazz fans, he had a fantastic career in Denmark and was beloved by European and Japanese jazz fans. In the late 1970s and 1980s, Drew's popularity in Japan grew to incredible heights when he began recording for Japanese labels such as Baystate and Alpha under a partnership with Japanese producer Makoto Kimata.

To commemmorate the 20th anniversary of Drew's passing, a very special series was launched in Japan in 2013, with a release of previously unpublished materials recorded for the two labels between 1972 and 1992. Most of them are alternate takes and takes that did not make onto the original albums released in this period, and Drew was accompanied by bassist Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen and drummer Ed Thigpen or Alvin Queen.

This particular CD is an exception to these rules. This album was originally recorded in 1978 for the Matrix label which Drew established with Sahib Shihab, as trumpeter Clark Terry's leader album. In addition to Ed Thigpen on drums, a special surprise is the participation of bassist Red Mitchell who was living in Stockholm at that time. This is a heart-warming, straight-ahead jazz album performed by the true masters of the art.

Recorded at Easy Sound Recording, Copenhagen, on August 21, 1978.
