Sonny Clark Trio: The 1960 Time Sessions! 

Considered to be one of the finest pianists of his era, Sonny Clark was an illustrious member of the New York jazz scene. Joined by George Duvivier and Max Roach, Sonny Clark Trio: The 1960 Time Sessions was remastered and re-released as a 2-CD set in November 2017 and was praised by critics as a "“Top Ten Jazz Reissue of the Year” (NPR Jazz Critics Poll) with Downbeat noting "[t]he remastering has given the sound an intimate new presence.” Creating an extensive body of work on the Blue Note label, this is Sonny Clark's only non-Blue Note recording, produced by the late Bob Shad, owner of Time and Mainstream Records. 

The remastered Sonny Clark Trio: 1960 Time Sessions features 6 additional false starts and alternate takes, unseen photographs and a 3500-word essay by former New York Times critic Ben Ratliff in addition to the original liner notes by Nat Hentoff. 

You can hear selections from the March Jazz Recording of the Month every Thursday this month on Jazz on the Rox with Roxane Gagné. Pick up your own copy at McNally Robinson Booksellers!
