Recorded in 1981 at Otter Crest, Oregon, this never-before-released live recording finds powerhouse jazz/blues pianist GENE HARRIS in top form! Captured here in a trio performance (which predates his legendary '80s comeback to the jazz scene as a member of the Ray Brown Trio), Gene is matched with empathetically swing cohorts Jimmie Smith (drums) and John Heard (bass). It's a hard-swinging GENE HARRIS outing that illustrates that this jazz and blues piano master was---here in 1981---more than ready to come out of semi-retirement and return to the task of making jazz history for the next two decades of his life.
