PREFACE DU CD (par Jimmy Gourley) :

A few years ago QUINCY JONES made an album entitled "This is how I feel about Jazz". I could use the same title for I hope I have made a jazz recording.
I fell in love with jazz as soon as I could figure out what was going on and probably even before but didn't realize it. I loved the feeling of swing, it was life, plus music. At the same time I feel in love with the "Great American Song". Exploration is still going on with american popular music and it's hardly finished in spite of all the "Experimenting" going on.. Anyway just subtitle this record "This is How I feel about jazz". Excuse me Quincy.

This is my first trio record and I'm lucky to have two "heavy" players with me. Marc Johnson is someone who, is already an accomplished artist. His time is impeccable -loose, yet urgent and when he solos he's lyrical, musical, and original. One of my all time favorites ! His two and a half years with Bill Evans and a lot of time with the Stan Getz 4 really got his ears and fingers together. Thanks Marc for making this date with me - I love it, I love it !
Philippe Combelle is going to surprise a lot of people. He practically steals the show. The sound he gets out of his set and the way he plays with the trio is just what the doctor ordered. With Philippe there were no problems, only happy times... "Mr Rhythm"' !!!
On the music ! I wrote three of the tunes on the album - "Montagne madness" which I dedicate to the "Caveau de la Montagne" a now defunct club where I spent many a happy evening. Listen to Marc rip into his second chorus - "There he goes" ! "Orgy Valley" or Orgeval the town where a lot of my favourite musicians lived for a while - nice memories. I bring my vocal cordes into play on the "Wrong Man Blues". A Song with a moral. Lyrics by Carol Bernstein.
Another blues tune is Manny Albam's "Shameful Roger". The blues, but with a difference. Joe Newman recorded it a few years back. "Ladybird" is the great jazz standard, recorded to thank TaddDanneron for having walked this earth.
Then there are three examples of the "Great American Song" - "You go to my head" at a bounce tempo, Marc Johnson is at his most lyrical. "I Thought about You", a very interesting tune to play - What a melody, beautiful lyrics too. Ella did the definite vocal reading a few years ago. Finally "Day by Day" another tune that lets you get off the ground. Enjoy !

NOTES (par Jimmy Gourley) :

Voici "one more time", "the jazz trio" revu , corrigé et amélioré par le miracle du digital et par le soin du sorcier Didier Drussant !
Ce disque fait en 1984 est pour moi toujours d'actualité. Il contient les trois éléments que je considère essentiels pour un disque de jazz : des mélodies intéressantes, harmoniquement denses et rythmiquement vives.

Marc Johnson est absolument parfait, ses solos et son sens du tempo illustrent en abondance les trois qualités citées précédemment. On peut toujours compter sur Philippe Combelle pour le swing, je sais qu'il aime ça et moi aussi.
Le swing est l'élément qui a mis le jazz sur l'échiquier mondial. "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing"... How true !!!
J'espère qu'il y en aura assez dans "the jazz trio" pour vous !

Jimmy Gourley

ARTICLES DE PRESSE :

Awards : Sélection
Jimmy Gourley a 57 ans lorsqu'il enregistre cet album, son premier en trio ; un coup d'essai en quelque sorte, qui s'avère être un coup de maître. Dès les premières mesures de 'Montagne Madness", un original du guitariste, le ton est donné ; The Jazz Trio sera l'image de son jeu : châleureux, direct, sans fioritures -ce qui n'exclut pas une pointe de lyrisme sur les ballades (prises d'ailleurs sur tempo médium plutôt que lent) - et gorgé de swing. Le répertoire est un habile panaché de standards ("I' Thought About You", superbe) et de compositions de Jimmy Gourley, dont "Orgy Valley", sur un tempo mi-jazz, mi-bossa, et "Wrong Man Blues", chanté avec humour par le guitariste. Marc Johnson (qui divise parfois le temps à la façon d'un Richard Davis) et Philippe Combelle, irréprochables de bout en bout, ont l'occasion de se faire entendre en solo sur la pluspart des plages ("Ladybird"). Si l'on en croit Jimmy Gourley, cette séance fut un véritable plaisir. Le plaisir est partage.

Parmi les guitaristes issus de la lignée de Charlie Christian, Gourley est l'un de ceux qui ont le mieux préservé et fait fructifier l'héritage. Ce disque enregistré en 83 rend justice à son sens de la mélodie, à son lyrisme qui ne verse jamais dans l'effusion, mais tire sa puissance émotionnelle d'une retenue propre à mettre en valeur la moindre nuance. Johnson et Combelle apparaissent comme des partenaires précieux, le premier remarquable improvisateur (son dialogue avec le guitariste dans You Go To My Head), le second alliant, à son habitude, discrétion et efficacité. A noter que par rapport au microsillon, ce cd offre deux "alternance takes", Orgy Valley, de Gourley, et Ladybird de Tadd Dameron.

American expatriate guitarist Jimmy Gourey has lived in France since 1950s and is not as well-known in the U.S. as he should be. Most of his recordings have been released only in France, apart from a hughly regardedsession for Uptown Records,"The Left Bank of New York". That's why the reissue of these two early 80s sessions is so valuable.
"The Jazz Trio" is a recording originally issued on the French Bingow label.Recorded in March, 1983 in Paris, thie reissue contains the original program (Montagne Madness/Shameful Roger/Orgy Valley (Orgeval)/you go to my head/Ladybird/Wrong man blues/I thought about you/Day by day) augmented by two previuosly unreleased outlakes (Orgy valley/Ladybird. Total time : 55.43). Gourley is a guitarist's guitarist ; and this trio format is the best way to hear him. His rhythmic chordal playing alternating with single njote lines on the heads covers all bases. His bop based solos usually consist of circuitous single note lines occasionally augmebnted by octave pâssages. An elegant melodicism is the hallmark of jis ballad plsying (rspecially on "I thoughtabout you"). Marc Johnson is q big-toned bassist who acts as much a contrapuntal foil for Gourley as an harmonic anchor. Drummer Philippe Combelle is a relaxed player who can also swing.
Clearly Gourley relishes complex, tricky composotions. Apart from "Wrong man blues" (standard blues with a throwaway vocal); he wrote "Montagne madness" and "Orgy valley", both with convoluted heads. Manny Albam's "Shameful Roger" is an intriguing variation of the standard blues. Add Tadd Dameron's "Ladybird" and a wonderful "You go to my head (with a couple of great choruises by Johnson) and you have a complete program by a complete guitarist.
