2-CD SET

INCLUDES 4 BONUS TRACKS

Eddie Higgins’ delicate tone and conception were often compared to those of Bill Evans, one of the most influential and successful jazz pianists. Higgins mostly played bop and mainstream jazz music throughout his career.

This set presents Higgins’ earliest trio sessions in their entirety. They comprise all of the music originally issued on the albums "The Eddie Higgins Trio" (Replica 1009), "Eddie Higgins" (Vee Jay VJLP-3017), and "Soulero" (Atlantic LP-SD1446), plus all known extra titles and alternative takes from the sessions. Four tracks in a quintet format that complete the Vee-Jay sessions have been added as a bonus.
