Description

A European tour with Miriam Makeba in 1970 took Parlan to Copenhagen, where four off-days gave him time to look around the city. He liked what he saw and two years later he settled down in Copenhagen. Horace Parlan enjoys playing solo piano but hasnt had the chance to do it all that often. Parlans aim in making this CD was to give highly personal interpretations of compositions which he has cherished over the years but which have not been over-recorded. He says: I am not a Tatum I have to make the material fit my particular style and I spent quite a bit of time working on the arrangement. I wanted to do a reflective CD no racehorse tempos, no pyrotechnics and also make the harmonic structures as interesting as possible. Tracks: Parkers Mood / Broken Promises / Two Sleepy People / Im Getting Sentimental Over You / Déjà Vu / A Time For Love / Three Little Words / Blood Count / I Waited For You / Make Me A Pallet On The Floor / Deep River / Pannonica / Melancholia.
