Considering he was a self taught pianist, Brian Auger's progress into the heart of the British modern jazz scene of the late 1950's and early 60's was particularly impressive. He gained invaluable experience the hard way, paying his dues at The Cottage Club, and the original Ronnie Scotts on Gerrard Street, working with renowned saxophonists Tommy Whittle, Dick Morrisey and Jimmy Skidmore - and sessions in smoky East End pubs with his friend, arguably Britain's greatest jazz saxophonist Tubby Hayes.
The inclusion of several of his rare, early 60's piano trio tracks on both volumes of 'Back To The Beginning - The Brian Auger Anthology' brought long overdue attention to Brian's early jazz career, which many were simply unaware of prior to their release. The enthusiastic reaction to those tracks stuck in Brian's mind, and later, fate intervened, as he himself explains; "A couple of years later, Ken Greene, the Music Director of Bogie's, called and told me that he was starting a project, to whit, a week at Bogie's with a different jazz piano trio each night"
This somewhat impromptu show was recorded, and these three tracks are taken from the resulting, forthcoming album 'Full Circle - The Brian Auger Piano Trio - Live At Bogie's' - surprisingly the very first piano trio album of Brian's long and award winning career.
