Power Trio is a jazz album by pianist John Hicks, bassist Cecil McBee and drummer Elvin Jones recorded in 1990 and released on the Novus label.[1]


The Allmusic review stated "This summit recording by pianist John Hicks, drummer Elvin Jones, and bassist Cecil McBee might not always hit the heights, but it still impresses with a fine repertoire and quality playing... In spite of a few musical missteps and the somewhat tinny sound of Hicks' piano, this fine trio recording still comes highly recommended".[2]
