Episodes of Virtuosity: Roy Haynes, Phineas Newborn Jr, Paul Chambers
We Three was originally released in 1958 and featured Roy Haynes (drums) Phineas Newborn Jr (piano) and Paul Chambers (bass). For me this album was love at first listen. The style was cool and straight ahead. The ensemble was well balanced in sound and technique, and the song choices and track lengths allowed the musicians to stretch out their ideas while remaining succinct and immediate.
In consideration of my recent post for the Paper Crane Collective I spent some time revisiting a few old favorites and rediscovered my love for this album. In supposition to this, today's Episodes in Virtuosity takes a closer look at the spectacular cut of After Hours from We Three.
