Perhaps the best way to appreciate Joanne Brackeen's artistry is to hear her unaccompanied piano version of Richard Rodgers's "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered." It's a solo, but her two hands move so restlessly, so independently, that it sounds like a duet. While her right hand is spinning the melody into ever more surprising tangents, her left hand is constantly shifting the harmonic groundwork. The tug of war gives the song a riveting drama. Brackeen's two-handed interplay is at the core of all six pieces on this album, recorded at a 1992 show in Manhattan. Taking the part of her left hand are her longtime bassist Cecil McBee and the marvelously flexible drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith; taking the part of her right hand is alto saxophonist Donald Harrison, a former Jazz Messenger like Brackeen. --Geoffrey Himes

you wish you'd seen her in concert. Here she has an all-star band, and she moves with equal virtuosity through complex arrangements for the whole group (with Cecil McBee her long-time collaborator on bass, Marvin "Smitty" Smith on drums, Donald "Duck" Harrison on sax) and her inimitable piano solos, bursting with a mixture of improvisational spontaneity and a sensible yet unanticipated resolution of each harmonic and rhythmic puzzle she sets for herself. Featuring half her own compositions, along with refreshing original versions of "There is No Greater Love," "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered," and Ornette Coleman's "Turnaround." I suggest you buy this before it goes out of print, as her work is prone to do. This one will take you to a night of the finest live jazz, heard in a small New York club, no matter where you live, any time you please.
