"Steve Kuhn has rarely recorded in the solo format, but this 1990 concert at Maybeck Recital Hall is one of his most memorable releases. "Old Folks", Kuhn's unique approach to it explores a larger range of the keyboard than most players, while powering it with a striding bassline that alternates a lot more than one would expect. He has a lot of fun introducing Miles Davis' "Solar," at first playing around with what sounds like a Scottish dirge and sneaking into a bit of the song while giving it an Oriental flavor! Both "I Remember You" and "Autumn in New York" are long but fascinating interpretations, as the pianist deconstructs and rebuilds each with very fresh approaches. This CD is well-worth acquiring.

"Happened to notice that the JMH review is verbatim that of Mr. Dryden's amg review at allmusic.com. What's up with that?!?"
