Coming off his first studio gig with Miles Davis (if I read the liner notes correctly,) Ray stands tall as an exceptionally wise sounding kid.
Playing here somtime in his mid-twenties, Ray demonstrates the wonderful stride influence that will gild all his subsequent work. It's as if, every early on, Ray has decided never to take himself too seriously - and as you listen, you always have the sense that he would be just as happy in front of a slightly out-of-tune upright.
This is a great disc, and serves the Bryant collector well as a great benchmark of his early work.
If you are new to Ray Bryant, this disc. will have you asking, "How much better can he get?" Pick up "Somewhere in France," for the answer to that question.
As always, Ray plays without pretense or distraction. Music seems to flow effortlessly from him, as if he is thinking it, rather than playing.
Big Ray is very cool indeed.

I started really listening to jazz about two years ago. Since then I am heavily involved in listening and purchasing jazz albums. This album ranks as one of my best buys. The music is so moving that I listen to this album over and over again more than any other album that I own. Ray Byrant Trio is skillfully crafted and I recommend it to all listeners, but especially to those that are learning about this genre of music and not sure how good an album is for purchase. I use this album time and again as the standard for my other purchases.

Bryant (p) Ike Isaacs (b) Specs Wright (d) 4/5/57.

Ray Bryant is a great blues pianist, yet this early recording has only one blues piece on it - and the album is still one of the best he ever made. BLUES CHANGES is the blues composition, and it's done slow and way down-home. The best tune on the album, however, is SPLITTIN, an up-tempo swinger. Bryant works well with Isaacs and Wright - the drummer uses a very light touch, especially with the brushes. The CD is a great success. Highly recommended.

Format: Audio CD
Ray Bryant was somewhat of a boy-wonder, in that his playing at an early age seemed to reflect the soulfulness and rhythmic wisdom of a more mature player. Prior to this '57 recording, Ray served as the "house" pianist for the Blue Note, where he played with talent like Miles, Sonny Stitt, and Bird. 1958 found him playing dates with Benny Golson. In '59, Bryant became the "house" pianist at the Newport Jazz Festival, and suprised a whole lot of people with his range and versatility. It may sound like a strange comparison, but Bryant sounds to me a lot like the Cannonball of the keyboard. Both his mother and sister were gospel pianists. This recording, with Ike Isaacs and Specs Powell, grooves the entire way through. Bryant really likes John Lewis' "Django" (he also played it solo at Montreaux in '77) and it shows. Boogie-woogie is a Bryant mainstay and he throws some in on "Django" with impeccable interjection. "Golden Earrings", "Angel Eyes", and, for me, especially Clifford Brown's "Daahoud" are highlights.

Format: Audio CD
I needed a single track to learn for an upcoming gig (Golden Earrings) and got caught up in the beauty of every track on this album. Give the sound samples a listen. If you hear them the way that I do, this album epitomizes what jazz piano trios should sound like. Bryant's bassist and drummer (Ike Isaacs and Specs Wright) are the perfect backing for Bryant's playing. I especially love Wright's brushwork, but Isaacs' bass is simply amazing too. I am quite familiar with Wright, but need to dig up more albums that feature Issacs because there is something about his playing that grabs me.

Of course, the focus should be on Bryant, and for me it is. Plus, his piano is perfectly placed in the mix, so you can savor each note. While the tracks are mostly by some of Bryant's contemporaries like John Lewis, Gerald Wiggins, Clifford Brown, etc., two of the tracks are his own compositions: Blues Changes and Splittin'.

This album was recorded for Prestige in Rudy van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ studio in 1956 (I cannot pin down the exact date), and released in April 1957. For me personally it is one of many from what I consider to be Prestige's golden era. At any rate, it is a perfect example of how great a jazz piano trio can be with the right leader and backing musicians.
