This was Mal Waldron's second trio date for Prestige/New Jazz Records. it was done in March of 1959 after a tour of Europe with Billie Holiday. Mal was Billie's arranger and pianist from 1957 to 1959. He was also in the 50's, house pianist/arranger/composer for Prestige Records and recorded with John Coltrane, Gene Ammons, Jackie McLean and many others. Mal had gained a great experience working with Charles Mingus and others as well. His piano style combines his major influences, Ellington, Monk and Powell all rolled into Mal Waldron. This album is a fine portrait of Mal as a composer and an interpreter of great standards. He's accompanied by Addison Farmer on bass and a young Albert "Tootie" Heath on drums.The first track is inspired by Mal's first trip to Europe with Miss Holiday and it's the 20 minute "Overseas Suite". Three standards follow and a final Waldron opus dedicated to his family called "All Of Us". This is a wonderfully refreshing date despite being done in 1959. "Impressions" will impress!
