This strange drum-less trio produces some of the most bouncing and joyous music of the 1950s. It's no wonder that Farlow formed such a group, having just left vibist Red Norvo's similarly drum-less trio. The guitarist delivers his clear, inventive, melodic lines with a drive and aplomb that would make them swing even without accompaniment. Costa's percussive approach and sense of contrast are a wonder, and Burke's bass is both strong and lighthearted. These three tackle this nice melody in a way that makes you miss the good old days. Indeed, who does play like this today?
