A pair of hard-to-find Blue Note albums from soul jazz piano master Gene Harris! 1971's Gene Harris/The Three Sounds is easily one of the hippest and funkiest records Harris made with his group the Three Sounds. Arrangements are by Monk Higgins but the sound is even heavier than the Higgins/Harris work of the late 60s and quite different than the straight trio material of their roots. Meanwhile, 1972's Gene Harris of the Three Sounds has him stepping away from his previous trio and really shining as the lead man on the record. The session features Harris with some righteous work on acoustic keys, but getting a sweet electric vibe from Wade Marcus, who handles all the backings on the date. A wonderfully soulful pairing with great results throughout. Original art including Of the Three Sounds' gatefold portrait of Harris as cosmic piano player with notes by Pat Thomas. CD debuts all around!
