Cannot ask for anything more than this: one of the greatest bassists who ever lived, a jazz pianist who infused every note with the blues and one of my drummer heroes who is possibly the best living brush master. The arrangements of the standards on this album are damn interesting. Since Ray Brown is the leader he may have had a hand in them, but I hear Gene Harris' unique style on each of them.

I never did like Keith.
I have tons of respect for his body of work.

The mind of an artist, a real artist my brain doesn't connect to much like yours might not but I can see it from a distance. It's maybe why I'm not a known name, I think about that stuff a lot. Like anyone else does. It's really fascinating, to me at least. 43 years ago, RIP.
