Paul Plimley - Everything In Stages (CD)
Release Date: 03/04/96
Playing inside, outside, and all around a Bösendorfer grand, Plimley reveals an idiosyncratic but powerful vision of the piano-as-orchestra. Paying tribute to his pianistic mentors (among them Ellington, Powell, Monk, Ibrahim and Taylor), he synthesizes jazz traditions, classical influences, and elements of new music (Zappa, Steve Reich) into a number of stylistic approaches which he combines and varies throughout a diverse program of original compositions and improvisations.
