SIR ROLAND HANNA: Color’s from a Giant’s Kit
IPO, 2011

SOLO PIANO – Compiled from several unreleased solo sessions, this CD shows Hanna (1932-2002) at the very top of his game, pounding the keys with authority or coaxing them to tender depths of feeling, mixing a deep classical sensibility with straight-up Detroit jazz in matchless sophistication. It’s a wonderful addition to his legacy.

Fo’s Picks: 1, 3, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 14

1. 2:10 – bold, bright and splashy
2. 3:21 – rich ballad, classical feel
3. 8:50 – gorgeous tune, runs deep
4. 4:29 – relaxed, strolling bop
5. 4:55 – lush, ornate standard
6. 4:23 – beautiful old-school blues
7. 3:33 – aching classical sound
8. 2:24 – opulent take on Coltrane
9. 7:22 – sumptuous standard
10. 5:21 – sneaky cabaret rag
11. 5:26 – pure, shimmering ballad
12. 4:06 – uptown sophistication
13. 3:38 – sprightly Ellington bounce
14. 6:31 – relaxed, sheer mastery

[ Fo ] - August 2011
