Martial Solal (piano)
European jazz legend Martial Solal is an imaginative and creative thinker for the piano, and one never straightjacketed by music genres. Voyage en Anatolie is a kind of survey of Jazz, with 13 brilliantly linked variations. The Jazz-Preludes and Études explore piquant harmonies through innovative pianistic figures, whilst the Exercice de concert offers a stunningly transcribed improvisation.
There are many recordings of Martial Solal’s music available but these are invariably those featuring him as a great Jazz improviser. This disc features a number of world premiere recordings of his music played by excellent pianist Eric Ferrand-N’Kaoua. The only piece previously recorded is the Ballade for two pianos, recorded by its dedicatees Katia and Marielle Lábeque in a mixed Jazz-centred recital called ‘Love of Colors’ – including pieces by Miles Davis and John McLaughlin in 1991. Solal himself plays the first piano part in the Ballade for two pianos.
