Quartette Tres BienBoss Tres Bien (Decca pressing) ... LP
Decca, 1964. Very Good- ... $5.99
A landmark blend of soul jazz and bossa nova – cut by the legendary Quartette Tres Bien back in the 60s! The group are kind of a "piano trio plus" – an outfit with piano, bass, and drums in the lead – but also plenty of conga and added percussion – a style used here to really underscore the bossa inspiration of the set – often in ways that are more driving and more complicated than original 60s bossa recordings themselves! The feel is really unique – almost equally inspired by African rhythms in parts – and even when the group are playing familiar numbers, then manage to transform the tracks completely with their inventive approach to rhythms and super-searing work on piano! Titles include the jazz dance classic "Boss Tres Bien", plus "Rhodesian Chant", "Always on Saturday", "The Sweetest Sounds", "I Love Paris", "Lover Come Back To Me", and "Days Of Wine & Roses". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has mostly split seams.)

Quartette Tres BienBully! ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good- ... $4.99
The only Atlantic Records session from the Quartette Tres Bien – and a set that's got a bit more punch than some of their records for Decca! The groove here still features the compelling percussion/piano lineup of the combo – with Percy James on bongo and conga, Albert St James on drums, and Jeter Thompson on piano – and the playing has a strong focus on the piano work by Thompson, with a good mix of soul jazz and lyrical styles! Includes the original track "Bully", plus versions of "Work Song", "Caravan", "Three O'Clock In The Morning", and "I Never Knew". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing.)

✨✧ Quartette Tres BienHere It Is! ... LP
Decca, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Quartette Tres Bien had a trademark piano/percussion/bass/conga sound that grooved nicely on their own material, and on their mellow covers of 60s pop and jazz standards. This nice mid-period Decca album by the group features some nice originals – like "Jamsine Eyes", "Tracy's Boogaloo", "Happy Donna", and "Pamelam-A-Lam" – all of which are nice and soulful. Also includes versions of "Shadow Of Your Smile" and "Goin Out Of My Head". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has some wear & clear tape on the seams.)

Nice stuff, and very cool mix of piano, bass, drums, and congas. LP, Vinyl record album
