Claude Williamson Trio (Bethlehem)

This 1956 date for Bethlehem boasted the most impassioned and intense performances of Claude Williamson's career to date — backed by bassist Don Prell and drummer Chuck Flores, Williamson channels the energy of collaboration to create a record of uncommon energy. Flores' driving, melodic drums set the pace here, maintaining a strong balance between form and function, while Williamson's piano exhibits a similarly rhythmic edge as well as a restraint that informs the music with tension and depth.

Excellent!
I always liked the chord voicing
of Cluade Williamson. I remember
his chord progression was featured
on the liner note of Bud Shank's
Live at Cal-Tech.
Thank you very much. Really appreciate it!
