The Dardanelle Trio

The Dardanelle Trio performed in the 1940s, primarily on the East Coast. I’m not positive about this, but the group apparently consisted of Dardanelle Hadley on vocals and piano, Tal Farlow on guitar and Paul Edenfield on bass.

    These are great! I was fortunate enough to have known Dardanelle when she was Artist in Residence at the University of Mississippi (1986-1988). She took me in as her guitar player (and sometimes bass player when needed) until she passed away. I have the dubious distinction of having played with her in her last performance. She was scheduled for “routine” surgery the following week, had complications and unfortunately never recovered.

    She often spoke of her early trios to me. Most of our concerts and gigs were in either her trio format, and the remainder were just us as a duo.

    I had never heard these two recordings! Thanks so much for posting these. Hearing her play “new charts” brought back an old friend that continues to have a huge impact on my career as a jazz musician.

    I do know that she worked a good bit with Bucky Pizziarelli and George Duvivier. She also did a short stint with Gene Bertoncini.

    Thanks again for posting!

      Cass – Thank you so much for your comment. It’s so exciting to hear that you played with her. And, the woman can play, no doubt about it. You’re a lucky man! I love her soft touch on the keys, but I also love how she delivers her vocals. She doesn’t overdo with any unnecessary emotive affect. She allows the song to stand on its own.. to breathe… while also letting her personality shine through and making it her own. It’s lovely.

      Thanks for listening. Since we came across this record, we’ve been on the lookout for more. We’ll keep looking…
