The Trio (also released as The Jazz Trio of Hank Jones) is an album by American jazz pianist Hank Jones recorded in 1955 for the Savoy label.
Allmusic awarded the album 4½ stars stating "This is a superb Hank Jones date; highly recommended for fans of piano trio music. In 1955, most jazz pianists were immersed in the school of Bud Powell. Jones is unique in that he developed his harmonic concept prior to Powell's ascendancy and the bebop revolution, but went on to fully assimilate the melodic vocabulary of bop. He has synthesized important elements from many great players into his own recognizable style. His versatility is evident on these eight selections".
Hank Jones - piano
Wendell Marshall - bass
