THE CLASSIC ALBUMS 1953 – 1961

Born in New York City in August 1928, Kenneth Sidney "Kenny" Drew was an American jazz pianist, playing in the bands of many true jazz greats during his career, from Coleman Hawkins to Buddy De Franco and Lester Young to Charlie Parker. He led many recording sessions throughout the '50s and early ‘60s: in 1957 he appeared on John Coltrane's pioneering Blue Train. • This delightful 4CD Set features eight of Kenny Drew’s finest works, originally released between 1953 and 1961 - clearly the golden years of his career. All presented here in beautifully remastered editions, this collection will prove both a perfect starting point for beginners to Drew’s music, as well as an excellent reminder of the musical prowess of a true jazz pioneer - albeit one who remains criminally under-appreciated.
