    That's the song! You might know the players, I plan to catch the duet next month in Paris area. The pianist composed the tune. He is still touring regularly and will be in Paris area next February. The whole album has this MFT nostalgic feel.

    Correct, Dan! Hargrove is also the composer of this beautiful tune "Into Dawn" which has not been recorded elsewhere to my knowledge.
  9. Roy Hargrove

    A tremendous player, a tragic story.

    A little third of not-only jazz, a third of French jazz and the remainder of relatively obscure US jazz, I'll try to calibrate better in the future! Not Kenny Drew. A prior incarnation of St. Thomas, about a year before Saxophone Colossus. It's like the Don Sleet's All members group, but of the West coast Yes, the drums mix is a bit distracting but becomes to me part of the charm of the record. That's a prowess, it is Allen Eager! French it is! Yes, I enjoy the tune but the jazz/rock guitar is a bit ever-present. Whenever I listen to this guitar style and this voice, I dance! That one might be more familiar to our Helvetian King. And reasonably so, the players have not made many records. I bet this one would be for our Brooklynite Clifford. I bet you know the pianist! Jim and John identified the track which as you mention later has an Adams/Pullen feeling (composition of Don). Congratulations, it is Waldron! It is Ralph Moore with his usual suspects of the late 80's. Not Geri Allen. A French group in the early 80s. I sure would not have bet on Rashied Ali named for this tune . The guitarist is the man! And the tune is a classic of the early seventh art. It definitely has a Getz/Barron vibe, but this was recorded in 2018. And it sure does not have that Getz thing . Two players I love to listen to when I go to Paris. The tune is pretty well-known in France and its title in English is actually pretty close to the song you mention! Thanks a lot for the very positive feedback!

    Yes, it is the theme of St. Thomas and it is indeed not Hank Jones. It's not Art! Unlike the first two tracks, tracks 3&4 have not been recorded in North America! The bassist is the leader. Not the MJQ nor the members of the group! It is not Jamal!

    Sorry for the inconvenience. I had checked the BFT on Firefox and IE but had no clue of the bitrate glitch on Chrome. I have reencoded all three tracks at 128kbps and Thom has updated his website so it should be playing fine now! Yes, that's Track 14. Great vibe and interplay on the entire album. Tune also called Trees and Grass and Thangs when later recorded with the Pullen/Adams Quartet.
