Originally conceived by a Japanese record label, The Great Jazz Trio began with Hank Jones, Ron Carter and Tony Williams 30 years ago. Throughout many iterations, Jones has remained as a constant, as well as the concept of pairing the veteran pianist with the most exciting rhythm section of the day. In 2005, at age 86, Jones found himself in the company of another GREAT rhythm section: John Patitucci on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums. Though certainly younger than Jones, they are both veterans who have established themselves firmly as superb musicians and masters of their respective instruments.

The title of this reissue LP is a bit ironic for jazz was really struggling commercially in 1967 and the "hits" were few and far between. In fact flugelhornist Art Farmer, who leads the notable hard bop quintet, would be moving to Europe the following year where he would work much more often than he had in the U.S.

Hank Jones, who has just turned 90, is still wowing audiences around the world with his elegant swing and "magic touch". The tradition of combining Hank Jones with an unexpected rhythm section continues in this wonderfully recorded hybrid SACD. The latest iteration of Jones' Great Jazz Trio includes veteran bassist George Mraz and explosive Billy Kilson who represents a new generation of jazz drummers. His sharp and powerful drumming is surely one of the highlights of this album.

Hank Jones, a true aristocrat of jazz piano, was 85 when this recording was made in 2004. His Great Jazz Trio has been around for almost 30 years, with various first-call bassists and drummers. His new team is state-of-the-art: bassist John Patitucci and drummer Jack DeJohnette.

Someday My Prince Will Come is a worthy salute from Hank Jones on piano, his brother Elvin Jones on drums and Richard Davis on bass. The session is Hank's final collaboration with his brother, who died in May of 2004. The somewhat conservative collection of ten songs commands more respect than awe, but Elvin fittingly delivers many of the album's sharpest and freshest moments.

Hank Jones, who was 88 years old at the time of the recording, has led many iterations of the Great Jazz Trio. The current band includes John Patitucci on bass and Omar Hakim on drums. This strong trio juxtaposes the agelessly elegant style and sophisticated harmony of Jones with the sharp, ultra-modern drumming of Hakim for interesting effects. The bass master Patituccion provides the solid foundation and imaginative solos. Although Sadao Watanabe was a guest on this album, it was important reunion between the Japanese alto saxophonist and Hank Jones. In 1976, Watanabe went to New York and recorded a wonderful, straight-ahead jazz album called I'm Old Fashioned with the newly formed Great Jazz Trio which included Jones, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. This was a very special, 30-year reunion.

On May 12 and 13 in 2002, Elvin Jones recorded his last album with his older brother Hank along with bassist Richard Davis as The Great Jazz Trio. Hank Jones wrote liner notes for Collaboration entitled "Elvin, my brother." An excerpt: "They say, ‘The Good Die Young.’ I Agree. Thad and Elvin did. They dedicated their lives to what they loved and believed in, even if that meant shortening their lives. As a family member, I sometimes wonder if we could have done less and stayed together as a family longer. On the other hand, I wholeheartedly respect Elvin’s desire to live out his life (playing). Today’s music world would not exist without him. The fact that he was a great drummer who influenced all those who came after him will forever remain in records and people’s memories".

This recording lives up to its title. In his prime, Phineas Newborn had phenomenal technique (on the level of an Oscar Peterson), a creative imagination, and plenty of energy. These trio sessions (with Leroy Vinnegar or Sam Jones on bass and either Milt Turner or Louis Hayes on drums) feature Newborn displaying plenty of heat and fresh ideas on compositions by Bud Powell, Bobby Timmons, Benny Golson, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins, and Miles Davis (along with two of his own). This is piano jazz at its highest level.

Live at Midem with Stan Getz, Paul Horn, Mike Garson, and Jazz Gala '80 are a continuation of a new tradition at Midem — a performance and recording of major jazz artists and the up and coming international jazz stars at the world record convention. Stan Getz traveled from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, taking leave from a gig at Bubba's and arrived in Cannes with his musicians: Andy Leverne, Brian Bromberg, Chuck Loeb, Victor Jones, on the morning of the 23rd of January '80. The show and recording session were that evening taped with a twenty-four track mobile unit from Paris. Paul Horn was in Cannes for Midem, having traveled from his home in Canada. Sugar Blue and Patrick Artero arrived the day before by train from Paris, and Gayle Moran, Joe Farrell and Mike Garson suffered a time differential of nine hours between the South of France and their homes in Los Angeles. The show's form and substance took shape at the rehearsel. Jean Claude Ast, the French assistant producer orchestrated the complex rehearsel schedule with musicians and technical people staying at dozens of hotels in Cannes.
