I really enjoyed listening to this CD.
Morehouse 1960
The music is incredible, and Roy Haynes - the session leader - does a phenomenal job of locking in with Paul Chambers on bass and supporting Newborn on piano.
Mike Tarrani
Put great musical talent together and give them the best recording engineer of the time and you have a super performance.

A tight, swinging and tasteful album by three of the greats of jazz. Phineas Newborn's talents got lost in health issues, so he isn't always given the respect he deserves as a pianist. Combined with Roy Haynes on drums and Paul Chambers on bass, they make every cut on this album a keeper. This is one of those trios that sounds like much more, yet each member gets a ample opportunity to step forward and solo. Give it a listen and I suspect you'll be hooked.

"We Three" is an obscure piano-jazz album. Yet, it is an album-length flawless piano-jazz experience like Dave Brubeck's "time out." The album is the fruit of a one-time collaboration between Roy Haynes and a little-known-gem of a pianist Phineas Newborn. The trio is tight, the sound is bold, and all the songs swing. "We Three" is a true gem! Also look for Hank Jones's "Hanky Panky."

I usually find myself buying jazz "songs." But I absolutely had to have every song on this one, so I got the cd.

This CD is quite simply one of the best jazz CDs around--elegant, intimate, tuneful and accessible even for the most diehard R & B afficionado. From the haunting piano motif of the aptly named "Reflection" all the way to the end, it's a perfect introduction to instrumental jazz and essential to any music collection.

This is a recording that truly ia a one of the best of the classic jazz trio. I am glad that Rudy Van Gelder was able to remaster so those who not been exposed to it in vinyl, could hear it. I had heard some of this before but could guess where or when.
I have been a fan of Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans Trios for ages and started listehing to jazz piano with Duke at the age of 4, lucky to have spent summers with an aunt, deeply into jazz. Before her untimely passing, I could pick out Goodman, Clifford Brown or Gene Krupa and others from the 78's she played. As I write this I am listening to Keith Jarrett,Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette on a wonderful ECM recording.
Speaking of recording this disc is a statement of how solid Rudy Van Gelders work was that almost 50 years later he can remaster from one of his earliest recordings done in his parents living room, and it sounds so good it could have been recorded not remastered in 2007, I THINK, I would rather be wrong then get up and check it, age defines many of my actions these days. The differerence in the quality of the remasters is the quality of the master tapes or in some cases the master disc that he cut, which would not give him the same raw data. This disc is one made in EU and is as good as you can get.
Hats off to the people at Movie Mars,a Amazon Marketplace seller, I have purchased many used cds from them and find that the merchandise is as first class as their service, and now will use them for new as well, when I do not need the 2 Day Prime Shipping. Hope it helps, a great disc well worth owning.

I am ashamed to admit that I am only now discovering this album and have become almost obsessed with it. The music is incredible, and Roy Haynes - the session leader - does a phenomenal job of locking in with Paul Chambers on bass and supporting Newborn on piano.

The sound samples on this page easily convey the essence of the music, and the greatness of how well the musicians come together to create magic that few piano trio albums have achieved. I can count the other piano trio albums that impress me as much as this on the fingers of one hand.

What I especially love about this album is it represents a study in tempos and space. The tempos from track to track vary greatly. The space in Newborn's playing in particular shows a side of him that is rare. Normally he plays as though he was being paid by the note. Here he seems to focus more on making each note count. Also, while Chambers and Haynes are a strong rhythm section, Newborn's use of rhythm is wonderful.

While this is a Roy Haynes led session, the real spotlight is on Newborn and this is one of his best albums in my opinion. It was a happy day when the trio walked into Rudy van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ studio on November 14, 1958 and laid these tracks down. And speaking of tracks, Tadd's Delight is actually a Tadd Dameron composition titled Our Delight. Other than that the album is perfect.
