O’s Notes: Kenny races across the keys, never missing a beat on the opener, “Caravan”. The pace varies but the energy level remains high throughout the set. We tend to favor the burners. His trio includes the legendary Philly Joe Jones (d) and Paul Chambers (b) holding the beat together. Kenny bounces through the melody on “Come Rain Or Come Shine” and “Taking A Chance On Love”. This is prime time Kenny Drew during 1956.
