This release presents a splendid series of sessions by th Bobby Timmons Trio, recorded in the early 1960s. A pianist strongly associated with the soul jazz style that he helped initiate and of which he was one of the major exponents, Timmons became known for his work with Art Blakey’s celebrated Jazz Messengers and later with Cannonball Adderley Quintet, before forming his own trio. Included here are the complete contents of the four following albums, Sweet and Soulful Sounds, Born to Be Blue, A Little Barefoot Soul, and Chung-King.
