5.0 out of 5 stars "Lost Treasure", June 7, 2001
By 
James W. Schultz (Port Charlotte, FL United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: At Newport (Audio CD)
This album may well be Solal's best work. As a college student in 60's, I bought this recording when it was first released. This "live", "Dynagrove" re-issue is technically clean and has excellent presence. Anyone that considers the 50's and 60's the golden age of "modern" jazz piano greats; and, who found the masters of impression and improvisation, - Jamal, Brubeck, Shearing, Peterson, Garner, Timmons, not forgetting Tatum, should own this.Classic standouts are interpretations of "Poinciana", "Clouds", "Stella by Starlight", and " maybe even outstructures Monk on the wonderful " 'Round Midnight." In concluding I can only say, FAR OUT!

5.0 out of 5 stars America exposed to a great European Jazz Pianist, July 7, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: At Newport (Audio CD)
This was one of the great jazz piano recordings of the 60s, and made an indelible impression on me when first released. It is as fresh as ever in this reissue. Solal is one of the most original of pianists, and this live release catches him at his best. This recording swings like mad, and Solal's stupendous technique set him apart from most of his American counterparts then, and now. His playing here is more direct, less abstract than later recordings. I prefer this earlier release, although all of his records are well worth exploring. A unique, magnificant artist.
