Description

Solo album by the great pianist Tete Montoliu recorded in 1971 and released on SteepleChase in 1986.

"El Grand Señior from Catalonia" was the way Dexter Gordon used to introduce Tete Montoliu to the audience at Club Montmartre in the '60s. Vincente Montoliu Massana, better known as Tete Montoliu (1933-1997) was born blind and learned to play piano at age 7 by Braille method. He studied music at the Conservatori Superior de Música de Barcelona (1946-1953). His remarkable international career took off in 1956 when Lionel Hampton invited him for his big band and since then Tete played all over the world with host of jazz luminaries. "Listen to the superb interaction between a man and his piano in the utmost sublimity...Montoliu shares the same pulse, sincerity, talent with his illustrious predecessors Art Tatum and Earl Hines..." - Pierre Steve
