Sonny Clark Trio with Max Roach & George Duvivier Full Album 41:47. Sonny's Crip - The Sonny Clark Trio 6:19. Sonny Clark Trio Blues Mambo 5:04. Sonny Clark Trio,George Duvivier,Max Roach. The 1960 Time Sessions. DashGoAudiobee, SME от лица компании Time Records Concord Music Publishing, EMI Music Publishing, 2019 14 Songs. Jazz 2019. Minor 1960-version of the trio consists of bassist George Duvivier and the drum-phenomena Max Roach. Together they form an organic unity that allows Clark's musicality to shine in a perfect setting. Music simply poured out of him and Roach, whether he plays with dancing sticks or shuffling brushes, follows him every step of the way in the deep pocket-groove of Duvivier. Time has only done Clark a favor and confirms this particular album as the jewel it is. Sonja - Max Roach, George Duvivier, Sonny Clark.

Also conspiring against Clark, according to annotator Ben Ratcliff, were the trendy critics of that time who had moved on from hard bop to the next big thing , which was the more experimental music of Miles, Mingus, Coleman and others. That is why, Ratliff writes, so little was written about Clark and why there does not exist a full interview. The older hard bop guys like Grant Green, Lou Donaldson, and Stanley Turrentine -now revered by Blue Note fans because they were among that labels stars-were rank and file compared to the new thing artists.

The delightful hard-bop pianist died at 31, and this is a reissue of his trio date with George Duvivier and Max Roach. Tompkins Square. Release Date: 24 Nov 2017. Clark died in 1963 of a heroine overdose, a sad casualty of a jazz epidemic during that era. He had arrived in New York where he would make his mark recording a handful of tasty platters as a leader and dozens as a select sideman for the best musicians of the era, like Sonny Rollins. The Sonny Clark Trio, the original name of this record, was recorded in March of 1960 by the small Time Records, toward the end of Clark's most fertile period, after the records that are considered his best. They are joined by bassist George Duvivier for a set of generally obscure Clark originals including Minor Meeting, Blues Mambo, and My Conception which is taken as an unaccompanied piano solo. Although not obvious while listening to his recording, Clark's life was in decline and this would be his penultimate date as a leader


This is more of a comment than a review.First, it is very welcome to see this 2 LP set come out. The more exposure of this marvelous pianist, the better.It contains two takes: "Nica", take 4, and one of the takes of "Minor Meeting" (9 or 10 - I'm not sure which), that are previously unissued. But it omits an alternate take of "Blues Blue", which is on my CD of this album. I have the 2003 Audio Fidelity CD, which has an alternate take of "Minor Meeting" but does not say which one it is."Junka", "Blues Blue", "Nica", "Minor Meeting" and "My Conception" are all on the Blue Note quintet date of 3/29/59 (that is, after this album). "Nica" is called "Royal Flush" on that date, and also on a 1/5/58 Blue Note date. "Blues Blue" is in G for the trio and F for the quintet. "Minor Meeting" is in C for the trio and G for the quintet. "My Conception" is in F for the trio and Eb for the quintet. "Nica" (here) is in F; "Royal Flush" is in F on the 3/29/59 quintet date, but in Ab on the 1/5/58 session. "Junka" is in F for both the trio and the quintet. "Minor Meeting" was also played in C on the Blue Note 12/8/57 session."Sonny's Crip" is not the same as "Sonny's Crib" on the Blue Note album of the same name, that is, it is not a typo.Finally, "Royal Flush" is not on the Donald Byrd album with that name.I hope you paid close attention: all this will be on the exam.
This was released by the Tompkins Square label and should be credited as such.
Has anyone hard problems with the quality of this pressing? Upon, opening my copy, I noticed a visible scuff towards the end of the first track. There is a popping every time the stylus passes over the scuff. The first two tracks on both sides are pretty noisy, but the noise subsides for the rest of each side? It would be great to hear other people's experiences. I'm trying to figure out if I got a dud or a larger batch of this release has the same problem.
Exact same problem on my copy. It looks like some sort of stain that creates a very loud popping sound every time the needle passes through. Similarly on my copy it happens on first track of both sides. Looks like a batch issue.
So, I got this the other day and I decided to do a review on it.First off, it's good to see Sonny Clark getting some props in recent years, especially on a high profile record store day release. I've always felt he was one of the best bop pianists, and I think the only reason he never got much attention during his life was because he worked with everyone EXCEPT Miles Davis. Anyone who worked with Miles got the rub, so to speak, and though he worked with virtually everyone else in jazz, not working with Miles seemed to make him obscure pretty quickly. Just my feeling.This release was Sonny's only solo release on Time Records. He also did a session with Stan Turrentine and another with Benny Green (which was reissued later under Sonny's name) for Time. This came after a period of classic sessions for Blue Note, and was followed by another shorter, but still fruitful final Blue Note run. As a result, this great session with Max Roach and George Duvivier is often overlooked. Hopefully this new issue (remastered and expanded with another album's worth of alternate takes) should remedy that scenario.First, the vinyl. This was pressed at Rainbo Records (Has an S- followed by several numbers in the deadwax, which is the project code for Rainbo). I know Rainbo gets a lot of crap because of the Beatles stereo remasters fiasco, but the vinyl in this set sounds fine, and honestly, any other vinyl I've ever had that was pressed by them has been generally good. As for the weight, it's not 180 grams, but it's not flimsy either. And my copy is pressed pretty well centered.Sleeve is OK, typical cardstock cover. Nice gatefold with new essay going into the history of the album, along with a few pics from the session. I actually thought there would be more pics, because there are a bunch from this session in almost every online article I came across on this release, but there are only 2 present here, other than the front cover photo. Printing is nice, everything is clean and sharp.As for the sound, this was remastered at DNA Mastering, and the hype sticker on the cover says "From Original Tapes", but most knowledgeable record buyers know that doesn't always mean analog mastering. It was probably cut from hi-res files that were made from the original tapes, and not the tapes themselves. But fear not, it actually sounds good.Only 2 things I would have tried to lessen/fix: This was cut at pretty low volume. Not that it needs to be loud, but there's almost 2 inches of deadwax on the first album in the set (the original album), they could've cut it a bit louder and it wouldn't have hurt anything. It's not like they didn't have enough room on each side. The other thing is, there is pretty audible tape hiss throughout, especially in the quieter parts, which is actually a good thing, as it means that they didn't take any liberties with noise reduction or excessive EQ'ing, therefore not compromising the sound of the tape...but, I feel they could've tried to lessen it to some degree. I have a reissue of the original album that was released in 2011 (which ironically was also pressed by Rainbo), and it was cut louder and doesn't seem to have as much tape hiss. Still, this release definitely has a lot of detail.The biggest reason most people will want this set is not for the original album (great as it is), but for the second disc, which features 6 alternate takes from the sessions, none of which have been available on vinyl until now, 2 of which have never been available anywhere. This second disc sounds great, and is actually cut a bit louder (not by much) than the first disc. These takes, having never been released until more recent CD issues and this set, have the advantage of not being used as much, and therefore sound a little cleaner.Overall, this is a great release of an underrated gem in the Sonny Clark canon. Great music, and great quality pressing and sound. Don't miss this if you're a jazz fan.
No problem, glad to be able to give some insight. Enjoy it!!!
Thank you for such an in depth review. I'm looking forward to grabbing one!
