Two albums on one CD. The complete long unavailable trio albums 3. A.M. & COCKTAIL FOR THREE, recorded by the legendary French pianist Georges Arvanitas for the Pretoria label. He is accompanied on both LPs by well-known American guest artists. Highly influenced by the music of Bud Powell, these were among Arvanitas' earliest albums as a leader. On the first of the two albums compiled here, 3 A.M., his accompaniment consisted of bassist Doug Watkins and drummer Art Taylor. One of the earliest LPs issued under Arvanitas' name, the album won the Prix Django Reinhardt and the Prix Jazz Hot. On Cocktail for Three, he was backed by Gene Taylor on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. Recorded 1958-59.
