The Ray BROWN Trio - Bam Bam Bam 1989

The Ray BROWN Trio - Bam Bam Bam 1989


Ok, this is one of those jazz records you must have if you are looking for lots of swing and superb piano and bass playing. Gene Harris will play it brilliantly in your home hi-fi if you give him the chance to perform his own version of «Summertime» (beware because you may become addicted to it...). As for Ray Brown you can't help liking his palying in «F.S.R.» and RIO. Don't hesitate in buying this record. It will pay you back in pleasure evey dollar you are spending.
By João Moreira dos Santos.
The Ray Brown Trio is caught on this CD live at a Tokyo concert and sounds obviously inspired by the enthusiastic crowd. The group (which also stars pianist Gene Harris and drummer Jeff Hamilton) stretches out on four standards, "Put Your Little Right Out," Victor Feldman's "Rio" and two Brown originals: "F.S.R. (For Sonny Rollins)" and the title cut. This release is a perfect introduction to the many fine Ray Brown-Gene Harris Concord recordings; it consistently swings with soul.
