Sealed, Out Of Print 180gm HQ Reissue Of The Mega Rare DOT DLP 3206. Limited To 300 Copies Worldwide. “Eddie Costa Was Probably Better Known For His Work As A Vibraphonist Than As A Pianist During His All Too Brief Career, Which Ended Suddenly After A Fatal Car Crash In 1962. He Sticks Exclusively To Piano On His Final Album As A Leader, Joined By Bassist Wendell Marshall And Drummer Paul Motian. His Interpretation Of Gigi Gryce's "The House Of Blue Lights" Has A Dark Tone Overall, Very Percussive At Times And Often Incorporating Fast Runs. Likewise, His Take Of "My Funny Valentine" Is Rather Moody, As If A Breakup Between Lovers Is Imminent. "Diane" Finally Lightens The Mood With Some Mid-Tempo Breezy Bop. Costa's Two Originals Include The Upbeat Cooker "Annabelle" And The Rambling, Almost Avant-Gardish "What's It To Ya." Marshall And Motian Provide Great Support For Costa Throughout These Experimental Sessions. It Is A Pity That Eddie Costa Died At Such A Young Age Before He Had An Opportunity To Expand Upon The Work Heard In This Valuable Date.” Ken Dryden, AMG.
