The Piano Series

"The pianist Martial Solal opened his week at the Village Vanguard on Tuesday night by rolling through tunes that jazz musicians have been amusing and sharpening themselves with for 50 years or more… One of the world’s most imposing jazz musicians — being 80 has not dimmed his agility or his imagination — he interpreted each passing moment of the songs as a provocation: spinning out a quick cycle of chords from just one, or interrupting the shape of a melody to add on a whole new structure, invented at breathtaking speed…" (B. Ratliff - The New York Times)

Nominations: GRAMMY(r) 2010 Best improvised jazz solo "On green dolphin street"

Recorded in New York on 12 October 2007 at The Village Vanguard  Recording engineer James Farber
