The list of great jazz drummers is pretty long and illustrious. Players like Max Roach, Elvin Jones, Art Blakey contributed so very much to the genre, but were not alone in doing so. I believe that Roy Haynes belongs in that pantheon of players as well and 'We Three' is all the proof you will ever need to believe it. The songs, while not accepted standards, are some of the most interesting from the period (check out the track 'Sugar Ray') . Phineas Newborn and Paul Chambers complete what might be one of the best jazz trios of all time. The solos are technical, but tasteful (including the drum solos, an instrument much derided for its lack of musicality). While not considered a seminal jazz recording by critics, 'We Three' should be a part of any serious jazz aficionado's collection and should be carefully listened to and studied by students of jazz drumming.Was this review helpful?

I've listened to jazz my entire life and I stumbled onto this recording or rather 1 selection on this recording on Pandora.com. I loved the piece that I heard and made the decision to purchase this CD. The best decision I've made in a long time with regard to buying an album before hearing the entire recording. This recording is absolutely magnificent! I can't say it enough! If you love jazz or even if you're introducing yourself to jazz and are just beginning to discover it's recorded treasures, make no mistake about it-this album has to be a part of your collection! Wow! It'll knock you off of your feet!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
