AAA (An Aimless Album)

"I wanted to like this album, I really did. After hearing a fantastic collaboration with Astor Piazzolla on an album they did in 1955, I couldn't wait to hear more. I surfed Solal's album selection on this site and settled on Bluesine as a place to start.Rarely have I been more disappointed. The music is choppy, discordant, and aimless. This just isn't the kind of jazz piano I like. Some do, I suppose, but like pickled jellyfish, its definitely an acquired taste. It is likely to gather dust until someone asks to hear it because a couple of listens is about all I could take."
This CD deserves 10 Stars !!!

"The guy some lines below who rated this CD as 3 stars doesn't really understand what JAZZ really is = Creativity !
This CD is amazing! Fantastic !!
For those who love modern Jazz, it's a must!
Martial Solal is probably the best equiped pianist since ART TATUM. Solal's creativity is endless. His inventivity unites the classical school and Jazz on an incredible way.
Forget almost all pianists you ever heard. Martial Solal IS THE GUY. Side by side with Chick Corea ( Piano Improvisations Vol 1 ), and Herbie Hancock, Martial Solal is one of the most astonishing pianists ever existed.
As good as piano improv gets

"This album turned me on to Solal, who since became my favourite pianist. This is piano improv at its most creative best. This guy is like Sonny Rollins of piano. Just check out his take on 'Round Midnight. Always fresh. If you like your jazz played by technical virtuosos with ingenius imaginations, you'll love this album. It's true, this ain't no George Duke."
