Jaki Byard • Blues for Smoke



Pianist Jaki Byard's first recording as a leader was not released domestically until this 1988 CD. That fact seems strange for Byard is absolutely brilliant on the solo piano set. Many of his selections (all nine tunes are his originals) look both backwards to pre-bop styles and ahead to the avant-garde including such numbers as Pete and Thomas (Tribute to the Ticklers), Spanish Tinge No. 1, and One, Two, Five. The most remarkable selection is Jaki's Blues Next which has Byard alternating between James P. Johnson-type stride and free form à la Cecil Taylor; at its conclusion he plays both styles at the same time. A highly recommended outing from a very underrated pianist.

Traducción Automática:
La primera grabación de Pianist Jaki Byard como líder no se lanzó a nivel nacional hasta este CD de 1988. Ese hecho parece extraño, ya que Byard es absolutamente brillante en el piano solo. Muchas de sus selecciones (las nueve melodías son sus originales) miran hacia atrás a los estilos pre-bop y más adelante a la vanguardia, incluyendo números como Pete y Thomas (Tribute to the Ticklers), Spanish Tinge No. 1, y One, Dos cinco. La selección más notable es Jaki's Blues Next, que tiene a Byard alternando entre la zancada de tipo James P. Johnson y la forma libre de Cecil Taylor; en su conclusión toca ambos estilos al mismo tiempo. Una salida muy recomendable de un pianista muy subestimado.
