Angel Eyes is the third album by American pianist and arranger Duke Pearson featuring performances by Pearson with Thomas Howard, and Lex Humphries originally recorded in 1961/62 for the Jazzline label but not released until 1968 on the Polydor label. The majority of the tracks (without the title track) were released on CD in 1991 on the Black Lion label as Bags Groove with three additional takes.

I was listening to a recently released unknown live set from the Duke Pearson Big Band, recorded in 1969, and I was reminded of his small group (rhythm section + horns) jazz albums he recorded for the Blue Note label. But these albums with a trio, "Profile" and "Tender Feelin's" (both from 1959) were his first two albums for that label. Individually these albums are either fairly expensive and/or difficult to find, so having both albums on one CD-in good digitally remastered sound-is a nice surprise.
