Rudy Van Gelder's Edition

Editor's info:
The Rudy Van Gelder Series consists of classic Blue Note albums that have been newly remastered in 24-bit by original engineer Rudy Van Gelder with state of the art equipment.
Considered by many to be this pianist's masterpiece, Clark is out front on this one with no horns to take the focus off his remarkable hard bop style. In Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones, both with Miles Davis at the time, the pianist had the greatest rhythm team in jazz at that time.
Clark swings through three standards and the bop classics "Be Bop", "Two Bass Hit" and "Tadd's Delgiht". Three alternate takes are added to the original album.

Ten stars
Reviewer: Jürgen Diehl from Germany, Wolfenbüttel
Sonny Clark! Paul Chambers! Philly Joe Jones! Nearly half a year after this sensational session, Chambers and Jones went in the studio to record the third track "Two bass hit" of this album again, this time with Miles Davis, Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley and Red Garland on "Milestones". But it fell short of this Sonny Clark version of the song. I think, with this album, Sonny Clark makes even Bud Powell, Monk and all the others out there look very old. On the first track, nearly 10 minutes of Be-Pop, Sonny pounds in your head what he has to say. When you think, there can be nothing more to say, Clark goes on, with the second track, the third track, and then Thadd´s Delight, followed by a beautiful version of "Softly as in a morning sunrise". The last track, maybe not up to par with the rest of the session, gives you time to think what great music you heard before. No original is needed, no horn is needed, it is the perfect, the best piano album I know. I can hear it over and over again, and I will do so in the years to come.

Fantastic Trio Piano
Reviewer: Bret Hart from Pewaukee, WI
Highly underrated, Sonny Clark was Alfred Lion's house pianist of choice in the late 50's to his untimely and tragic death in late '63. This set proves Sonny's talent by putting him in front by himself, backed up by THE rhythm section of the time...from "Be-Bop" to "Softly as in a Morning Sunrise"(my favorite version), Clark keeps the groove going, capping it all off with his solo masterpiece "I'll Remeber April". For the Clark uninitiated, this is where to start - Blue Note 1579!

Excellent! This is one of my favourite piano-trio records. Great versions of Tadd's, I didn't know... and especially Softly. I like philly joe's playing on that selection! Buy this one...

Finally available again
Reviewer: Didier Red from The Netherlands, Europe
This has always been a great album. Of course the RVG has a great sound, although the bass 'booms' every now and then and it seems to be more stereo than the earlier release. And my European pressing has an interesting misprint on the cd. It actually says, on the disc, Sonny Cl,ark! Perhaps now the value of my copy rises by the minute. But besides all that it's good to know that you can just hop into a recordshop and get this one again! Personally, I like all of Clark's earlier Blue Notes, but if you don't know him yet, go get yourself this one and listen to those three grandmasters kick ass!
