Best of the Vintage Solo Piano Jazz



Pianist Gini Wilson: The Duchess, is the Director and co-founder of the well known San Francisco ChamberJazz Quartet. Best of the Vintage contains lyrical and haunting arrangements of well-loved jazz standards, two pop songs, two bossa novas by the famed composer Amandio Cabral, and some emotionally resonant originals by the legendary Bay Area pianist.



“Wilson is a highly trained musician who is informed by the best elements of classical music and jazz. Emotion-drenched chord progressions and effortlessly floating harmonies are just a few of the tools she employs to convey her deeply personal musical statements. Wilson's precise execution sounds nothing short of regal ..." --Ken Hohman, All About Jazz.

“Legendary in the Bay Area for her irreverent sense of humor as well as her mix of numerous jazz-related styles--Monk, Chopin, Waller, Bach, Bill Evans--pianist Gini Wilson effortlessly and beautifully blends the realms of jazz and classical, ...seemingly disparate musical styles can actually create perfect harmony." --Jonathan Widran, All Music Guide.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
