Steve Kuhn, Scott Lafaro & Pete La Roca – 1960

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“A lost bit of early work from pianist Steve Kuhn – recorded privately by Peter Ind in 1960, but done with a quality level that easily matches any of Kuhn’s best studio work! The trio here features Steve on piano, Scott LaFaro on bass, and Pete LaRoca on drums – and with a lineup like that, you can easily imagine the flowing, graceful approach to the tunes on the set – a style that’s clearly influenced by the work of Bill Evans, but always willing to take things a bit farther. There’s a quality here that’s a bit like Kuhn’s early Three Waves album, but with a sound that’s less darker overall – and although the album’s a bit short, it’s a key contribution to Kuhn’s catalog – and sits nicely next to any of his better-known trio dates.” – Dusty Groove.
