Sign in to view read count
The new solo piano recording of Alan Broadbent Just One Of Those Things shows very clearly: Broadbent is not only a highly acclaimed arranger and orchestra leader, two Grammy Awards as well as working with Woody Herman, Natalie Cole, Diana Krall, Paul McCartney, etc., he is also a great and distinctive pianist. In decades of cooperation with the unforgettable Charlie Haden and his Quartet West, he demonstrated this emphatically. Charlie Haden praised him as “one of the most original improvisers of jazz".

Broadbent's last solo CD Heart To Heart received a rare 5-star award from Downbeat magazine and also from the British Jazz Journal. His solo performance at the St. Emilion Jazz Festival also drew praise from Jazzman magazine as Best Jazz Concert 2012 in France.

His new solo recording on the vinyl Edition Longplay proves this exceptional position strongly. His improvisations on piano pieces by Cole Porter and the likes of John Lewis and Dave Brubeck to Elvis Costello show him again as a master of sensitive and emphatic reinterpretations and boundless communication. He is, as formulated by Tobias Richtsteig in his liner notes, a “Storyteller".

In a congenial manner the silent and sensitive woodcut art by the Stuttgart artist Martina Geist corresponds in “energetic pictorial spatial communication" (Werner Meyer).

For the first time every one of the limited edition of 500 copies LP is accompanied by an mp3 download card. In addition, a limited unique-edition of four copies will be released at the price of 190, - Euro (incl. Edition Long Play LP 11) with two additional tracks that are published solely in this form. 9 unique - handmade woodcut prints of the cover by Martina Geist will be released at the price of 380, - Euro (incl. Edition Long Play LP 11).
