James Williams - Magical Trio 2 (EmArcy, 1988)
with Ray Brown & Elvin Jones

 

James Williams was so great, and he died too early. 

I´ll never forget how impressed I was by his playing on the first Blakey LP I had "In This Korner". And then seeing him perform with Blakey with that band with Bobby Watson and Valery Ponomarev...

The last time I saw James Williams was when he played piano in a very strong Dizzy Gillespie Big Band organized for his 70th Birthday Tour in 1987.

Yes  this Art Blakey group was great. We had  a concert in our private Jazz Club (Koblenz, Germany) in 1979.

Man I wish Bob Brookmeyer hadn't been such a cantankerous jerk on the old Jazz Corner forums. Now, whenever I see one of his records, it's one of the first things I think of.

I always wondered why it was so cheap when I saw it.

Williams' music always has a soulfulness and warmth, doesn't it?  Even when he's playing uptempo.  

I think that's one of the reasons he worked so well with Blakey.  TOTALLY agree with you re: In This Korner

Straight Ahead, Blakey's 2nd live record from the Keystone -- again with James Williams -- is excellent too. :tup

I love it. That rubato on the beginning of "Thespian" is wonderful. Such a great album.

Mark Gardner wrote the notes, dated August of 1969.

Wow, that would have been a totally different take on the music than the MPS/JEB notes, no doubt...

In a quick look at the Prestige Discography, I counted 16 Prestige issues of MPS material. How else would Oscar Peterson and Ella Fitzgerald end up on Prestige?

There was a Clarke-Boland as well, correct? Who else?

Wondering how well that series got distributed nationwide. We had pretty goo rack-job service for Prestige when I started buying in 1970-71, but I never saw any of those.
