The Window

Mack Avenue Records, Vertrieb Inakustik, LC: 37061, release 28.09.2018

The Window’, an album of duets with the pianist Sullivan Fortner, explores and extends the tradition of the piano-vocal duo and its expressive possibilities. With just Fortner’s deft accompaniment to support McLorin Salvant, the two are free to improvise and rhapsodize, to play freely with time, harmony, melody and phrasing.

The Message

Martial Solal

My One And Only Love - European Jazz Legends Vol. 15

Intuition, Inakustik 03 2018

The two "Sir Jack" improvisations on the theme of this canon included in this live recording alone attest the pianist’s sensitivity, creativity, and prodigious technique. And yes, they, and all the other melodies you thought you knew so well, sparkle with refreshment, too.

This time he incorporates the sensibility, if not the outright sound of early rock and roll—a similarly hybrid form driven by rhythm, personality and a passion for the electric guitar.
