In 1961 the gifted British pianist Victor Feldman took bassist sam Jones and drummer Louis Hayes, his rhythm section mates from the Cannonball Adderley Quintet, into the studio for his own date. The result was Merry Olde Soul, quite possibly the finest trio album of Feldman’s career. Full of the swinging spirit that Feldman enhanced in the Adderley band, the session also featured his sensitive ballad work on Duke Ellington’s “Come Sunday” and on the little known “I Want to Be Wanted.” On three tracks highlighting Feldman’s vibes playing, he is accompanied by the sparkling piano work of Hank Jones.

with Hank Jones, Sam Jones, Andy Simpkins, Louis Hayes
