By Mike Tarrani HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on February 7, 2013
Format: MP3 Music
Although the 3 Sounds initially recorded for Riverside, then switching to Blue Note for a solid run of recordings, this one is their first album for Verve. It was recorded in Rudy Van Gelder's Englewood Cliffs, NJ studio over a four day period (12 through 15 October 1962.) I have no idea why this album took so long, but it's interesting to note that Blue Gene was recorded in two parts, and one track during that session - Let Me Off Uptown - never made it into the album.

It was also their fifteenth album in four years, which shows how prolific and popular they were. They were also popular on the jazz club circuit and the tracks on this album reflect what they were playing to those audiences.

Usually when there are sound samples on a product page I encourage listening to those instead of writing about the music. That is valid here too, but Gene Harris loved to open songs with long piano intros that do not give a complete feel for how a song will go. Too often the sound samples do not include Andrew Simpkins' superb bass that perfectly supports the melody line, nor Bill Dowdy's somewhat aggressive approach to drums that somehow becomes the rhythmic linchpin for both Harris and Simpkins.

Like their other albums - nearly all of which I have - this one is a swinging, blues-infused collection of jazz piano trio tracks that have this group's distinctive sound. If you are a fan you are sure to love it. If you are new to the 3 Sounds I also recommend that you check out The Three Sounds: Only the Best (Original Recordings Digitally Remastered).
