This CD reunites two excellent piano trio sessions co-led by the "volcanic, inflammably honest bass virtuoso" (as wrote Nat Hentoff in the original liner notes).

In the first date, with the outstanding pianist Hampton Hawes and the drummer Danny Richmond, the repertory consists of four standards and three original composition - two blues and a Mingus' homage to Dizzy Gillespie titled "Dizzy Moods,"based in the Dizzy's famous "Woody 'N' You".

The second date corresponds to pianist Paul Bley's surprising recording debut as a leader with Art Blakey on drums. The repertory includes five standards, four original compositions and a blues with no head, with four bonus tracks (three unissued tracks and one alternate take).

Both albums recorded in New York City, November 1953 and July 1957.
