The Great Jazz Trio

Hank Jones has been known to be a quintessential sideman and occasional leader during his lengthy career as a premier jazz pianist. His most frequent project has been as the ostensible leader of the co-op group known as the Great Jazz Trio, a classic example of how the piano-bass-drums format has remained timeless, enduring, and ever challenging. Formed in the spring of 1975, the initial threesome performed together for the first time at the Village Vanguard nightclub in New York City for one week, was given its name by owner Max Gordon, and consisted of Jones, drummer Tony Williams, and bassist Ron Carter. These musicians from three generations with ties to Miles Davis formed a unique bond playing standards and originals of each bandmember. The trio got together again in May of 1976, and this time headed for a studio to record an album with Japanese alto saxophonist Sadao Watanabe, resulting in the album I'm Old Fashioned. In February of 1977 the trio was again booked in the Village Vanguard for a week, and they recorded three days of the extended engagement, making several live volumes of their music available on vinyl for the Japanese based East Wind label, issued in the U.S. on Inner City. Concurrent studio efforts including Love for Sale (1976,) Kindness, Joy, Love & Happiness, and Direct from LA (1977,) and Milestones (1978) cemented the reputation of the original combo. The Japanese continued their interest in booking the group for concert tours, and documenting the music of the GJT, with many more releases on East Wind and Denon only available as imports in the new CD era up to 2008, with another string of Great Standards, Vol. I-V for Alfa Jazz. Many of the recordings used cover art surrounding Major League Baseball images, especially action photos with the Boston Red Sox (Williams was born in Boston, as opposed to Metro-Detroiters Jones and Carter) the most famous being pitcher Roger Moret on the cover of the 1978 LP At the Village Vanguard. Since the passing of Tony Williams and Ron Carter's increased interest in a solo career, the personnel of the Great Jazz Trio has changed, but Hank Jones has always spearheaded the effort. Among some of the partners the pianist has employed; bassists Buster Williams, Eddie Gomez, John Patitucci, and Richard Davis, along with drummers Al Foster, Elvin Jones, and Jack DeJohnette. The band in one configuration or another has lasted over four decades, recording on average one album per year. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi

Piano trio jazz does not get any better than this. Hank Jones at the piano and his brother, Elvin Jones, on drums with Richard Davis on bass are absolutely magical. Consider yourself fortunate to have lived at the same time as the Jones brothers were creating such incredible music. Congratulati o n s indeed on lives well lived ....
Hank Jones is FANTASTIC!!! Saw him at the Hollywood Bowl a couple of years ago on a double bill with Gerald Wilson celebrating them on their 90th birthdays. It was a humbling experience. Hank played with his trademark elegance and class and inspired and amazed everyone in the 18,000 seat theater! I hope I can still hold my fork when I'm 90, much less play an instrument with such absolute authority and refinement. Congratulati o n s Hank on a life well lived and a job well done!
I'm listening to "My Funny Valentine" by The Great Jazz Trio, absolutely beautiful.

Beautiful melody. Awful arrangement.

This is class at it's best.They don't write music like this anymore. Oscar Peterson said it best "There hasn't been any good music composed since the 40s and 50s."
