Solo Piano (Contents: Holiday Rag, Earl's Ballad, Go Tell it On The Mountain, Melancholic Blue, A Cloudy Walk, Train To Nowhere)

'This volume contains a total of six pieces featuring idiosyncracies characteristic of the jazz scene along with typical speeds. On the piano, the left hand is required to exercise a dual function, being called upon to assume the effect of a rhythm guitar and bass! Thus, in frequent instances, the main difficulty does not lie in the right hand alone, but rather in the skillful combination of both hands to produce proper rhythmic coordination. Apart from an abundance of solos, all written out in full, special importance has been attached within the pages of the album to catering for variety. A whole number of different jazz styles are employed, the spectrum ranging from ragtime, jazz ballad, gospel, slow jazz waltz, and medium swing, through to blues in shuffle rhythm. Prepare to create your own improvisations -- get into the swinging mood, snap your fingers, jiggle your feet -- it's really hard to sit still with all the exciting grooves and swinging rhythms to carry you away. Get bitten by the bug and revel in the excitement of these lively arrangements!' (Ralf Hoffman)
