NOW AVAILABLE ON CD!!! Tompkins Square is proud to announce the release of the 1960 Time Sessions from the SONNY CLARK TRIO (Clark, MAX ROACH, GEORGE DUVIVIER). Sonny Clark's reputation as one of the finest jazz pianists of his era has grown in recent years, with many folks rediscovering his classic Blue Note recordings like 'Cool Struttin,' 'Dial 'S' for Sonny,' 'Leapin' and Lopin,' as well as session work with Lee Morgan, Grant Green and others. Cut down by heroin addiction at age 31 in 1961, Clark's legacy continues to expand. The Time sessions were produced by the late BOB SHAD, owner of Time and Mainstream Records. The reissue includes the original Time album remastered from the original tapes by DAVE DONNELLY, plus an extra disc of alternate takes previously unavailable on vinyl. NAT HENTOFF wrote the original liner notes, included in the reissue package, and former New York Times critic BEN RATLIFF contributes a new 3500-word essay. The set was produced for reissue by MIA APTOW (Time Records) and JOSH ROSENTHAL (Tompkins Square).  “Top Ten Jazz Reissue of the Year”—NPR Jazz Critics Poll “The remastering has given the sound an intimate new presence.”—Downbeat, 4.5 / 5 stars “This is the way jazz re-releases should be done.”—All About Jazz, 4 1/2 stars  "This lesser-known Sonny Clark session (his only studio album not made for Blue Note) is sometimes issued under drummer Max Roach's name, too. They are joined by bassist George Duvivier for a set of generally obscure Clark originals including 'Minor Meeting,' 'Blues Mambo,' and 'My Conception' (which is taken as an unaccompanied piano solo). Although not obvious while listening to his recording, Clark's life was in decline and this would be his penultimate date as a leader."—AllMusic
