       The Quartette Trés Bien was an American jazz combo based in St. Louis
 led by pianist Jeter Thompson. The group started to play around 1960 and
 began recording in the mid '60s. Jeter Thompson played with Jimmy Forrest,
 Oliver Nelson and Emmett Carter in his early years. The bassist of the group
is Richard Simmons, the drummer Albert St. James who accompanied also
Charlie Parker, Tab Smith and Jimmy Forrest. Percussionist Percy James added
 a Latin flavor to the quartette who played more than ten years, before splitting.
