Sonny Clark Trio – Minor Meeting (1960)

Minor Meeting is from the album Sonny Clark Trio, released on Time Records in 1960.

Clark is inspired by his sidemen (bassist George Duvivier and drummer Max Roach) as he digs into a full set of his originals. None of the tunes became standards, but all are excellent. The music falls between classic bebop and hard bop, with Clark as usual displaying the influence of Bus Powell along with his own voice. His life was unfortunately quite brief, but Sonny Clark never recorded an unworthy record. This one is well worth picking up. [source]
