I'm not into debating whether Tete's solo work is better than the small group stuff, or whether vol 2 is better than vol 1. This is great in its own right and is a must-have for jazz aficionados. IMO Tete was as good as any jazz pianist, maybe the best ever. That doesn't really matter. Check him out. You'll be glad you did.

Outra noite estava eu dormindo e lendo o imenso livro A New History Of Jazz, de Alyn Shipton. Na taça ao lado, três dedos do bastante honesto Cabeça do Pote: um tinto 2001 das lusas Terras Durienses, encontrado por compreensíveis R$20,00 nos mercados de Vila Velha e cercanias. Acordando num susto lancinante ouvi um ruído dramático gerado pela agulha do toca-discos: era minha bisavó colocando Tete Montoliu, The Music I Like To Play, Volume 1 para ouvir. Olhei desconfiado: piano solo?

Não esperava grande coisa de um pianista espanhol cego tocando jazz sem cozinha. Mas confesso a boa surpresa ao ouvir, entre uma ou duas dúzias de clichês da música erudita européia, um pianista cheio de excelente técnica e profundo swing. Se é que podemos fazer tal tipo de análise, ele me soou como uma espécie de Red Garland possuído pelo espírito de Bud Powell. Colorido, veloz e preciso sem perder a emoção. Passeando por clássicos populares, como Don't Smoke Anymore, Alone Together ou Whisper Not, Tete convence até aqueles que, como eu, não apreciam beber um tinto ao som de 50 intermináveis minutos de piano solo. Recomendo ambos, piano e livro, embora Shipton não faça qualquer referência ao grande pianista espanhol em suas quase mil páginas de boa história. Merecia ser citado.

Tete Montoli is a type of musician that makes an enthusiast of Jazz wonder why he is so little known.He is an amazing two handed player who sits with Tatum and Peterson in ability and improvisation added to which he has been blind since birth.If he had been born in America i am sure his talents would have been recognised and lauded like so many American pianists are .The CD in question shows his talents but there are better recordings of his playing,namely"Music for Perla" which is a must buy for any Jazz collecter.He has played with Dexter Gorden,Don Byas(who lived in the Montoli home while in Barcellona)and with Lionel Hampton in 1956 which was his recording debut.Other recordings followed with Roland Kirk,Shepp,Don Cherryalso Anthony Braxton with extensive travelling around Europs and the USA.If you do not know of Vincent "Tete" Montoli i would suggest you treat yourself,you will not be disappointed.
