Description

The second volume showcasing the bebop pianist Joe Albany (1924 - 1988) performing a solo concert at Copenhagen's famed Montmartre club on May 1, 1973. It serves as a further testimonial to an extraordinary artist. SteepleChase' 1973 release 'Birdtown Birds' (SCCD31003) by Joe Albany trio recorded live at Copenhagen's famous Jazzhus Montmartre took the world's jazz fans who have all but forgotten about this bebop piano legend by surprise. Joe Albany not only existed but still performed with vigour and authority. Albany concluded his engagement at Montmartre with solo recital which is presented here following the first volume (SCCD31794). Albany's troubled life seen from his only daughter's perspectives were made into a film entitled 'Low Down', which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival to critical and public acclaim. "In this previously unreleased solo set, recorded in 1973, the ideas come tumbling out so copiously that they sometimes fall over one another - but they're all his own ideas and there's nothing glib about them. He was a genuine original." - Dave Gelly, The Observer "This is a rare glimpse of Albany, and it may appeal both to completists and general listeners." - Andy Boeckstaens, London Jazz News Personnel: Joe Albany (piano)
