The same formula that made the Fantasy 45 Series perhaps the most successful
audiophile reissue collection ever is now being reapplied to Blue Note reissues!
This 1960 trio date was pianist Parlan's first of many great releases for Blue
Note. The Pittsburgh native, who overcame polio as a child that left his right
hand crippled, had gained some serious props with his contributions on two of
Charles Mingus' best albums the year prior (Mingus Ah Um, Blues And Roots), and
was now ready to step out on his own. Choosing to tackle mostly standards,
Parlan channels his idol Bud Powell's classic trio dates with the able
assistance of Blue Note regulars Sam Jones, bass and drummer Al Harewood. The
result is an eclectic mix, interpreting the works of Tadd Dameron, Duke
Ellington, Milt Jackson and Burke-Van Heussen plus a Parlan original, "Up In
Cynthia's Room," which became one of his signature pieces.
