In the 1970s the Montreux Jazz Festival alwas presented at least one solo piano concert. For example in 1974 there were concerts by Earl Hines and by Cecil Taylor, which I did present here.  Since I noticed that that blog entry gathered some interest, I decided to look if there’s some more solo piano from Montreux in the vast collection of my late friend Otto Flückiger. And there is!

 

First from June 23, 1972, we have Ray Bryant’s appearance. At least parts of his set were released on this Atlantic LP

Since I do not own this LP, I can not tell you what parts of it are in the TV footage. Bothe the record and the video start with Gotta Travel On.

The other solo piano clip from Montreux I found comes from July 20, 1975. This concert by Andrew Hill also resulted in an LP:

But again, I am not able to compare the contents, also because I do not know Hills 1970’s repertoire very good.

Enjoy!

Andrew Hill on Ping 1003: “After Dark”

In this entry that I posted about a year ago from I offered you the Andrew Hill Combo with Von Freeman and Pat Patrick playing “Down Pat”. Since it turned out that a lot of people seem to be interested in Andrew Hill’s early work, I decided to put up a clip of the flipside as well.

Here you get the Andrew Hill Combo playing “After Dark” for Ping Records in October 1956. The musicians are: Von Freeman: ts, Pat Patrick: bars, Andrew Hill: org, Malachi Favors: b, Wilbur Campbell: dr.

Unfortunately not much can be heard of Hill’s organ work here as he is way behind in the mix. But do not be too much disappointed, a great early Von Freeman solo will make up for this. Enjoy!
