Another great Mel Rhyne album. Thanks for sharing!

This is a standard jazz organ trio album with sax added for a few tracks.

Maybe this is the best Rhyne album in my opinion, of those I have heard (I have not heard all though). The album is balanced and diversified while still coherent when it comes to the repertoire and with really great playing by all involved.
It feels like Rhyne is enjoying playing in this company of top-notch players and he plays very well!
The album is also very well produced regarding sound (e.g. Mel Rhyne's left hand walking bass lines are not too low in the mix).

Thanks again!

Hi Pier

I'm into Mel Rhyne, and I would like to ask if you happen to have

Melvin Rhyne - Classmasters

Melvin Rhyne - Front And Center

If you have them and would like to share them it would be great and I would be thankful.

Anyway and always,
All the best to you,
