We are pleased to present this CD by the extraordinary pianist: Larry Fuller Trio, Easy Walker. It features the legendary bassist Ray Brown and the incomparable drummer Jeff Hamilton, recorded in 1998, just as Fuller was transitioning from being a member Hamilton's trio to being a member of Brown's popular trio. Fuller remained a member of Brown's grooving ensemble until the bassist's passing in 2002.

Larry Fuller has become installed into the continuing tradition of jazz music over the years as a younger member of many well-known groups as a sideman at festivals, famous clubs, and world tours. Stanley Turrentine, Ernestine Anderson, Sweets Edison, etc. One listen will tell you why - he swings with an authority and infectious bravado.

This tremendous recording was originally presented by the Japanese label - and friends of Ray Brown's - GML Records. It was not available in the US until now. Our many thanks to GML for their friendship. On a trip to Japan, we made arrangements to present this and several other recordings of like sort, in exchange for GML presenting Pony Boy releases to Japan and Asia, in an "XRCD" format (Extend Resolution CD).
