Blue Note


The Finest In Jazz Since 1939
High Fidelity

Babe's Blues (1961)


The accessible and enjoyable material on this Blue Note album was not released for the first time until 1986. The popular Three Sounds (pianist Gene Harris, bassist Andy Simpkins, and drummer Bill Dowdy) perform mostly standards on the album, infusing their swinging music with funk, soul, and sincere feeling. Highlights include Randy Weston's "Babe's Blues" and "Work Song." ~ Scott Yanow
