Top Customer Reviews
Timmons's stint as Art Blakey's musical director the the Jazz Messengers honed his arranging skills, which are also evident on this album. If you are on the CD's page, you can listen to sound samples here: This Here Is Bobby Timmons. With the exception of the issues I noted about Moanin' the performances are solid and tight, both on Timmons' part and his excellent rhythm section (Sam Jones on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums). Also, I personally love his solo rendition of Billy Strayhorn's Lush Life. It shows Timmons' range as a pianist and a soloist, as well as his ability to interpret one of my favorite compositions. Also, his innate musical humor is evident throughout the album. Listen carefully and you will be rewarded.
This album was recorded for the Riverside label at Reeves Sound Studios in NYC on January 13 and 14, 1960, and released the same year. If you are a Bobby Timmons fan this is essential. If you are just discovering him I still highly recommend this album.
I study his left hand work on the theme of This Here. Quite impressing.
