Description

Limited edition reissue of a classic 1981 SteepleChase LP on standard weight vinyl, cut from the original lacquers. Dexter Gordon used to introduce his favourite pianist Tete Montoliu (1933 - 1997) on stage as "El grand senior from Catalonia!"

The first volume of the celebrated series of live recordings from Zelesta, the famed club in Barcelona, was highly acclaimed by the critics and audience alike.

"The album captures Tete at the peak of his powers, in inspirational company and among a warmly sympathetic audience...Thanks to tracks like these we can continue to celebrate his diamond bright lines of compelling logic and vivid beauty." - Mark Gardner

"...his extraordinary virtuosity permits him to keep the breathtaking speed while playing beautiful melody line with great confidence of improvisations. Here in 1980 trio he explodes with a bang!" - Pierre Schavey, The Lion

Personnel: Tete Montoliu (piano), John Heard (bass), Albert Tootie Heath (drums)
