THE INTEGRAL VEE JAY STUDIO WORKS OF ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING PIANO TRIOS!
FEATURING PAUL CHAMBERS, SAM JONES, JIMMY COBB & PHILLY JOE JONES.

INCLUDES ALL THE MASTER & ALTERNATE TAKES.

This release contains the complete Vee-Jay studio recordings by the Wynton Kelly trio for the first time ever on one edition. The Wynton Kelly heard here (from the period 1959-1961), as the original liner notes clearly state, was at the peak of his fruitful collaboration with Miles Davis, with Paul Chambers, Jimmy Cobb and the inimitable John Coltrane filling out the celebrated quintet. So it is truly interesting to hear Kelly as the main performer, displaying his own personality and even playing some of his own compositions.
