Thanks! Share it with your friends!


With These Hands… is a jazz album by American jazz pianist Randy Weston, featuring saxophonist Cecil Payne, which was recorded in 1956 and released on the Riverside label.

“With These Hands is one of pianist Randy Weston’s lesser-known sets. Weston, who already had a fairly distinctive style, mostly sticks to standards (which is quite unusual for him), including “The Man I Love,” “This Can’t Be Love,” and “Do Nothing Til You Hear from Me.” A quartet is featured that also includes baritonist Cecil Payne (who would be a longtime associate), bassist Ahmed Abdul-Malik, and drummer Wilbert Hogan. However, the date does include two of Weston’s originals and is actually highlighted by the debut of his famous “Little Niles.”” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
