Personnel includes: Kenny Drew (piano), Freddie Hubbard, Hank Mobley, Sam Jones.
While he perhaps never achieved star status outside the jazz world, Kenny Drew was and remains one of the preeminent straight-ahead bebop pianists. While he has led a very active career, 1960's UNDERCURRENT was Drew's last album as a leader until the 1970's. In a way, UNDERCURRENT is the intersection of two very popular jazz groups of the day--Cannonball Adderley's (Sam Jones and Louis Hayes) and Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers (Hank Mobley and Freddie Hubbard), with Drew's keys and tunes the unifying voice. UNDERCURRENT is a fine, timeless mix of bop funk, fire, and finesse.
