Martial Solal - piano

On the evening of October 12, 2007, history was made: a piano solo recording was made for the first time at the legendary Village Vanguard. Martial Solal, very concentrated as usual, begins his musical journey which, starting with famous standards and his own compositions, takes him very far away. Solal runs deeply through his own improvised resources and, as always, recreates the material as he moves closer to it.
The audience follows him with intense attention, literally captured by the inexhaustible creativity of this tremendous pianist. Now, that splendid performance has been documented on “Live At The Village Vanguard”, the fourth album by Martial Solal for CAM Jazz. Every Solal album is a continuous surprise, such is the fantasy that this outstanding pianist, improviser and composer is able to offer. And the Village Vanguard recording is certainly no exception.
