Red Norvo had been playing and recording for a very long time before he formed his classic trio responsible for Move! in 1949. Vibeman Norvo employed a young Tal Farlow on guitar, and Charlie Mingus on bass - both absolutely legendary players now, but at the time, far less well-known. The album, recorded for the Savoy label in 1950/51 was very well received indeed, and helped cement the careers of all involved.

The original release features the twelve tracks listed above, but the lineup actually recorded twenty tracks in total before Mingus left. Several reissues of this material have been put out including all twenty cuts - make sure you get all twenty if you can.

This album has some very fine playing from all involved. All three musicians can be considered virtuoso, with guitar, vibraphone and bass all working together tremendously well. In particular listen to the title track Move, but also I'll Remember April, and Swedish Pastry.
