Herbie Nichols Trio – Herbie Nichols Trio (Mono) – Blue Note (Tone Poet) 180g Vinyl

Herbie Nichols was one of the most original pianists and composers in jazz history. Blue Note founder Alfred Lion considered him to be as unique and important a voice as Thelonious Monk, another singular talent who Lion was the first to record a few years before he signed Nichols in 1955. Little-known during his lifetime, recognition has begun to grow in recent decades for Nichols’ incredibly hip, angular compositions, each of which were miniature marvels built with their own sturdy inner logic.
