The Great Jazz Trio - Love For Sale

 I have never understood why these guys chose such an ridiculous name...not that they didn't hold up to it. Still....it just seems such a bad idea. But moving on...
 Something just happens when a classic trio locks into it and covers classic tune after tune. It's after dark and the temperature is still hovering over the 80 degree mark and yet the music makes me feel cool and comfortable. How nice is that?

Thank you very much for this one! The name was really not very original but the great jazz trio give us fine recordings.

I'm a big fan of Hank Jones. Somehow I had missed this one. It is the next one in the queue to play - can't wait. Thank you.
