Great!

I agree with Thirdpol - this is a marvellous album. Stanley Cowell has played with Marion Brown, Max Roach, Stan Getz and the Bobby Hutcherson-Harold Land quintet, amongst others. Most recently he has formed a very fruitful partnership with trumpeter Charles Tolliver - and can he heard on the terrific album Impact! (also available on eMusic).

Electrifying

This is one of the great solo piano albums. The dizzying changes of the opening track alone are mesmerizing, and it gets better and better from there. Art Tatum meets Don Pullen, touching on so much jazz history and so creatively.

They Say All Music Guide

Playing at Maybeck Recital Hall before a small but attentive crowd seems to bring out the best in many pianists. Stanley Cowell performs a well-planned program of 14 selections on this 1990 CD. On a two-minute “Softly as in a Morning Sunrise,” Cowell runs through all twelve keys. He pays tribute to the stride-piano tradition on “Stompin’ at the Savoy,” explores some bop, Latin-jazz (a transformed “Autumn Leaves”) and post bop music, plays “Jitterbug Waltz” in the style of Art Tatum, inteprets “Stella by Starlight” in 5/4 time and performs J.J. Johnson’s “Lament” with just his left hand. A very interesting recital. – Scott Yanow
