Composer / pianist THOMAS TALBERT (1924-2005) made only a few records. He was the prototype of a “Third Stream” character who could never choose between composed music and jazz. His first attempt at a synthesis: the “Bix, Duke, Fats” LP from 1956, which was received very well everywhere at the time.
