Hank Jones - Trio

Hank Jones has made many memorable albums over his long career, but this 1956 session with Belgian flutist Bobby Jaspar is one that could easily get overlooked. Jaspar's melodious flute adds some magic to an already memorable arrangement of "Moonlight Becomes You." He also keeps up nicely with Jones in Charlie Parker's tricky blues line "Relaxin' at Camarillo." "Minor Conception" is a slightly exotic number by Jones, while Cannonball Adderley's "Spontaneous Combustion" wraps up the session with a flourish. Jones delivers his usual superb performance, while Paul Chambers has several fine solos, and drummer Kenny Clarke propels the date with his crisp brushwork. At just over 36 minutes, this music is well-worth acquiring.
