Album Notes
Dr. Bill Dobbins, renowned jazz educator,in his book, "Alone Together," said of this recording, "In my opinion it is, simply, some of the most profound, solo piano improvising ever recorded." He also stated, "In my opinion Clare Fischer is the most important composer and arranger in jazz since Duke Ellington." Here then are eleven selections played on Clare's Yamaha 7½ foot grand piano, recorded in the recording studio at David Abell Pianos and then brought home where it fills the Fischer home with music.

Paul Weiss

Deep, gorgeous harmonic concept
This is a brilliant CD, with a huge stylistic and emotional range. It's basically a collections of jazz fantasies, where one section meanders freely to another, perhaps to a completely different style. The treatment of Clare's "Pensativa" is dense and ruminative, and very different from any recorded version of his now-standard tune which I've heard before. In other cuts, his use of a solid 30's stride approach, but with a dissonant post - impressionist harmonic vocabulary is just jaw-droppingly rich. Amazing stuff, and clear evidence of why at least two generations of jazz pianists have considered him a deity.

Beautiful (careful?) piano playing!
My first encounter with Fischer's music, on recommendation. The standards are played beautifully, without the often annoying show-off pianoplaying that dominates other artist's CDs. My personal favourite is track 8 ('Guajira'), which is carefully built up around a simple theme.
