Kenny Drew Trio - Introducing the

Being on BN, I would have thought this would be a little easier to run across. Mine is a replica of a very rare 10'er.
 This Drew's first outing as a leader. Even though there are only two originals, this is a great example of just past bebop jazz. the version of "It Might As Well Be Spring" is an absolute smoker. i listened to this record this evening as the sun was setting and the grill was wafting the sweet smell of charcoal and apple wood. I was amazed at how long it had been since I played the wonderful record. I am happy to share it here.
