Bottoms Up “The Three Sounds” LP Vinyl


The Three Sounds cut their first album for Blue Note in September of 1958. That record, Introducing the Three Sounds, became an unexpected success among record buyers, and the group’s live performances earned fans like Horace Silver, Sonny Stitt, Miles Davis, and Cannonball Adderley, even if critics tended to dismiss the group.


The Three Sounds were one of the most popular artists on Blue Note Records during the late ’50s and ’60s, thanks to their nimble, swinging, blues-inflected mainstream jazz. They played with such musicians as Miles Davis and Kenny Burrell. In the fall of 1958, they moved to New York to work with Stitt. Shortly after the move, they signed to Blue Note, in addition to supporting Nat Adderley on a Riverside session.
