Maybeck Redux

© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.

As a complement to the earlier three-part feature developed by the editorial staff at JazzProfiles on the solo piano recordings done in performance at beautiful Maybeck Hall in Berkeley, CA which you can locate, here, here and here. the ace graphics team has put together this video remembrance of the marvelous series of CD’s issued by Concord Jazz in the 1990s to commemorate and, in some cases, memorialize these recitals.

With the music from over 40 solo piano albums to choose from, it was very difficult to narrow our choice down to one track for the video.

But after listening to Allen Farnham’s lovely rendition of Dave Brubeck’s In Your Own Sweet Way, the choice almost made itself.
