In Stores September 26th on Label M.

One of the first calls Joel Dorn made when forming Label M was to his old friend, the great jazz pianist, Ray Bryant. He was looking for any old concert tapes Ray might have had of himself. Within a week Ray arrived with a garbage bag full of cassettes he found in an old china closet. It was from that stash that this gem of a concert was discovered. Ray was given the tape by a soundman after a gig he played in France in 1993. He had no idea the show was being recorded that night, and not having labeled the tape, he has no recollection of the city or venue where the performance took place.

Solo piano is where Ray Bryant shines the brightest. His albums Alone at Montreux, Alone With The Blues and Montreux
