Editorial Reviews

Columbus Calvin Pearson Jr. (Atlanta, Georgia, August 17, 1932 August 4, 1980), better known as Duke Pearson, set great store by lyricism and flowing, effortless swing every time he played. I try to get to the heart of each tune, he said. "I try to get to the meaning of someone else's tune. He was equally adept when scoring his own compositions or setting the work of others. This brilliant pianist was not afraid of unabashed romanticism, a quality very much in evidence throughout his improvisations on these trio performances and expressed through his gentle, warm, almost sensuous touch. Alongside him, bassist Gene Taylor's work is unfailingly impeccable, and Lex Humphries provides ample confirmation of his reputation as a sensitive, thoroughly reliable drummer. The interaction within the group is at all times of the highest level in a virtually flawless demonstration of the art of reflective, many-faceted jazz piano trio playing.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was listening to a recently released unknown live set from the Duke Pearson Big Band, recorded in 1969, and I was reminded of his small group (rhythm section + horns) jazz albums he recorded for the Blue Note label. But these albums with a trio, "Profile" and "Tender Feelin's" (both from 1959) were his first two albums for that label. Individually these albums are either fairly expensive and/or difficult to find, so having both albums on one CD--in good digitally remastered sound--is a nice surprise. This (77+ minutes) set is actually between 3-4 "stars"--especially if you're a fan of this type of music from this period. The 10 page booklet contains an essay on Pearson, the original album liner notes, plus reproductions of the original album covers, and recording information.

Both albums show Pearson's relaxed, lyrical yet swinging style. The other members of the trio are Lex Humphries on drums, and Gene Taylor on bass. Together they play almost as one mind--very intuitive which is needed (especially) in a trio format. Both albums were recorded in the last months of 1959, and were engineered by Rudy Van Gelder, and are here in their original mono sound.

These two albums are Pearson's only trio dates, and his relaxed, swinging style is evident no matter the tempo. Listen to "I'm A Fool To Want You" and you'll hear what I mean. He was not only a good pianist but was well known as a great arranger. His big band albums (both on Blue Note) are strong evidence of that, plus, listen to the recently discovered live big band set on the Uptown label. Pearson's piano playing was "pretty"--there's no other word for it. Yet there's an undercurrent of the blues that's never far away. He also wrote some good tunes, three of which are on this set.

If you want a detailed analysis of the album by a jazz/music expert, read the other review. That reviewer is really worth his "Top 100 Reviewer" Amazonian Medal of Honor. If, on the other hand, you like to get advice from uncouth barbarians who can't remember how and when this album was purchased, read away.

As far as I can tell, it's an OK album to put on while washing dishes and doing mundane chores. Nothing memorable and catchy, but then, it won't startle the baby or 15 year-old napping pets (whichever one you have). Neighbors probably won't complain about the music. It's the musical equivalent of beige.
