Lloyal fan, but disappointed

"Being familiar with Loussier group handling of classics, I looked forward to his Chopin interpretations. But he really needs a rhythm group behind him to put it across. His pure solo work just doesn't make with me."
Not the best in 150 years!

"Give us a break. But a respectful improvisational approach to Chopin's Nocturnes, one that I think will stand up under repeated listening."

"I love these solo piano improvisations. They offer plenty of variety, with a wide range of jazz styles all spinning around unmistakable Chopin themes. Unlike a previous reviewer, I found this was fine without the drum and bass. In fact it makes a pleasant change from Jacques Loussier's trio performances. (I feel the same way about Keith Jarrett, too, on The Melody at Night with You, which I would rate about equally)."
