If you've heard the name Herbie Nichols, you'll have undoubtedly heard he's one of the great overlooked figures in jazz. Because of obscurity his recordings have been very difficult to obtain outside of collector-oriented boxed sets. Certainly his Complete Blue Note recordings are very much an essential purchase for anyone seriously interested in jazz. However, the daunting pricetag of that set is a lot to overcome if one hasn't heard his playing before. Thats precisely the reason the reissue of this session for Bethlehem is so welcome. The numbers here are on par with his Blue Note work, and actually a little more 'straight ahead' in feel. The session consists of predominantly originals with a few standards/interpretations thrown in for good measure. Nichols' Monk influence is fairly obvious, but then Monk influenced us all and calling Nichols merely a disciple falls short of crediting his talents. This trio session rounds out with George Duvivier on bass, and Danni Richmond on drums. The edgy lyricism of Nichols really shines throughout. If you've been hesitant to get into Nichols because of boxed set price tags, definitely pick up this disc: it'll be a revelation.

(from an earlier article, copyright 2000,
2006 Michael F. Hopkins)

His sound sweeps with the swirl of ballroom
grandeur, strikes deep with a groove which
picks you up as you walk or ride, and bears
such an innovative focus of rhythm, harmony,
and melody that one is stunned at the ease
by which his song strolls its way into the
heart and soul, gracing the ears with the
flow of a most radiant balladry. His sound
is sheer swing and sophistication, dissonance
placing a fine edge to a deep-reaching, deeply
singing style advanced enough to anticipate
the first musings of Cecil Taylor, while
harmonically taking you by the hand into
thematic, chromatic, courageously romantic
wonderlands which could challenge Thelonious
Monk himself . Listen to the pianistry of
Herbie Nichols, and know the magic of Jazz
at its finest; provocative and soothing,
serenading and strengthening, all at once.

Those who know of this underappreciated genius
probably know him a) by his main body of
recordings for Blue Note Records in the mid-
1950s, b) through appreciation ensembles
assembled by disciples Roswell Rudd, Steve
Lacy or Misha Mengelberg, and c) by notable
recordings of his timeless compositions by
the likes of Billie Holiday, Mary Lou Williams,
Archie Shepp and, most recently, Geri Allen.
Yet many remain unaware of this 1957 date for
the Bethlehem label, which placed Nichols'
superb artistry in the kindred company of
bassist George Duvivier and drummer Dannie
Richmond.

Too Close For Comfort indeed! I love how he plays this standard. At one moment he sounds like he's channeling Ella, another Erroll. At another moment he sounds like he's at an ironic yet loving distance from the whole project known as "Jazz"...or is it "Jazz Piano Trio"...or "Piano Trio". Something...but he doesn't show his hand the way Monk does. You could put this version on right after Wynton Kelly or Ray Bryant and it wouldn't be shocking. Why was his career such a disaster? I mourn him and it. You have to read A.B. Spellman's book. Herbie's playing is so incisive, so tasty, so musical, so humble, so smart. He "reaches back": you can hear traces of Mary Lou Williams (they had some sort of connection), even Jelly Roll Morton at spots. I do NOT think he is that influenced by Monk, although there are obvious connections. Unfortunately he is poised somewhere between Teddy Wilson and Thelonious - and he fell through the cracks. The compositions on this disc are not, in general, on the level of his best Blue Note tracks (House Party Starting, The Gig, Shuffle Montgomery, Terpsichore,etc.) but this disc is nonetheless essential (Beyond Recall is a great piece). The trio sounds like it may have played together a bit more than the greats on the Blue Notes. They have a really interesting hookup. OK - convinced? If you love the more creative side of the piano trio you NEED it!

Lo poco que grabó Herbie Nichols es indispensable para cualquiera que se precie en coleccionar buen jazz. Además de lo que grabó para Blue Note este músico "maldito" realizó sus últimas grabaciones a su nombre para el sello Bethlehem. De los 25 temas que grabó solo se llegaron a publicar los 10 que escuchamos en este CD. Nichols fue el único pianista que siendo un evidente alumno de Theloious Monk nunca le imitó. Si te gusta Monk adorarás a Nichols.

Beautiful music from this very interesting - and still obscure - composer and piano player.
