O’s Notes: Fred returns to the trio format after his last“Solo“release (4/4). Bassist John Herbert and drummer Eric McPherson join the legendary pianist for“Sunday Night at the Vanguard“another live recording and a well received performance. They hit full stride on “Blackwing Palomino” and maintain a high standard on all of the following songs especially “For No One” and “The Peacocks”. Fred’s playing is dynamic, drawing listeners in and locking their attention. The trio is well knit composed and complementary, placing accents in the right places. Nicely done!
