The trio of Hancock, Carter, and Williams is jazz lore, 5 years in Miles Davis' lineup and more in the studio together attuning their synergy. Carter put them together at Milestone, linking up after the V.S.O.P. Quintet had honed their chemistry. The playlist features 3 Carter originals, Williams' "Lawra," a waltzed "Stella by Starlight," and Hancock's vivid "Dolphin Dance," all played a unity that carries the music to a higher plain.
