This is NOT a hybrid SACD. Reissue features the high-fidelity SHM-SACD format - fully compatible with standard all SACD players, but it does not play on standard CD players.
Recorded for Riverside, this set mostly features the influential pianist Wynton Kelly in a trio with his fellow rhythm-section mates from the Miles Davis bands, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Jimmy Cobb.
"Kelly Blue" and "Keep It Moving" add cornetist Nat Adderley, flutist Bobby Jaspar and the tenor of Benny Golson to the band for some variety. Kelly was renowned as an accompanist, but as he shows on a set including three of his originals and four familiar standards (including "Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise" and "Willow Weep for Me"), he was also a strong bop-based soloist too. A fine example of his talents. [Some reissues augment the program with a previously unreleased "Do Nothin' Till You Hear from Me" and the alternate take of "Keep It Moving."
