About Al Haig Trio [Period]

Al Haig Trio is a 1954 jazz album released by Al Haig on the Esoteric records label; in later rereleases it is therefore often known as Esoteric or The Al Haig Trio Esoteric. The album is notable as being one of three that Haig released as leader in 1954, the final year of his first period of success. There followed some twenty years of obscurity, broken in the later 1970s, when he was finally recognised as an important pioneer of bebop, and began to be recorded again. This album contains thirteen sides, and was awarded a crown in Cook and Morton's The Penguin Guide to Jazz.
