Having made a good impression in 1955 with his playing on Miles Davis Quintet/Sextet (OJCCD-012-2) and then on an Epic LP, in 1957 Ray Bryant captured the undivided attention of the jazz world with this album, a perfect expression of his style and of the art of the piano trio. Bryant's understatement and fleetness were undergirded by the straightforwardness and rhythmic urgency of his gospel background and the complexity of his modern harmonic understanding. Ray Bryant Trio established Bryant as one of the most important pianists of his generation.
