Quartette Tres BienBoss Tres Bien (Decca pressing) ... LP
Decca, 1964. Good+ ... $4.99
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
(Pink label promo pressing. Cover has some wear.)

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

✨✧ Quartette Tres BienSpring Into Spring ... LP
Decca, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure one from the Quartette Tres Bien – one of their first new albums for the Decca label, and a lyrically beautiful set of piano and percussion tracks with a heck of a lot of soul! The approach is similar to that used on many of the group's other ones from the time – piano trio soul jazz, augmented with additional percussion on bongos and congas. There's a good ear for the tunes on the set – and apart from the album's two great original numbers ("Accidentaly On Percy" and "We Remember Jamie"), the rest of the set's got some well-chosen numbers that let the band open up in complicated rhythms. Titles include "Lover Man", "The Night Is Young & You're So Beautiful", "Joey Joey Joey", and "It Might As Well Be Spring". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & some writing in pen.)

✨✧ Roy MeriwetherStone Truth – The Live Sounds Of The Roy Meriwether Trio ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Lightly groovy work from the Roy Meriwether trio – sounding especially nice in this live environment – a bit like Ramsey Lewis' group, but with more touches of the style of the Quartette Tres Bien. Tracks are handled in a simple soul jazz mode that's plenty pleasing and very consistent throughout – and titles include "Watermelon Man", "Sabya", "East Of Nowhere", "It Had Better Be Tonight", "Loose Walk", and "Feeling Good". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound mono pressing. Cover has some splitting on the bottom seam.)
