The virtuoso Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba performs a variety of standards and original compositions on this remarkable stylistic display. While Rubalcaba is obviously capable of jaw-dropping feats of pianistic skill, on SOLO he more frequently opts for an understated approach that creates a nuanced setting for his lyrical flights of fancy. Combining Cuban rhythms and impressionistic neo-classical forms, this collection of improvisations is spellbinding, with the delicacy of a spider's web and the underlying resilience of a rock-solid technical foundation.

Herbie Hancock - Hunt for the Funk

Along with his former employer Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock is the other founding father of jazz-fusion. In 1973, his album "Head Hunters" laid down the Holy Scriptures of the most successful union of jazz improvisation and funk psychedelic trance. Afros and platform boots all around!

John Coltrane, the Continuous Blow(n)

Just half a century ago, the American saxophonist passed away at only 40 years old, leaving behind many recordings which have revolutionized the history of his instrument, of jazz, and also of the music of the twentieth century.

Keith Jarrett’s American Quartet

At the start of his busy career Keith Jarrett spent seven years carrying out all manner of crazy experiments with his American Quartet. Between the years of 1971 and 1976, the pianist, alongside Charlie Haden, Paul Motian and Dewey Redman ran some kind of mad laboratory in which the genres of hard bop, free-jazz, world and avant-garde would all come together. A spontaneous and interesting time worth rediscovering.
