Another in the Concord recordings of solo piano concerts at the Maybeck Hall, a small auditorium (c fifty seats) in California. This is volume 23 and dates from 1992. There have been criticisms about the recoring quality of some of this series, but I don't share that view and think that, in common with virtually every recording on the Concord label, the recording quality is first rate and, on my equipment, the sound of the grand piano is captured to perfection.

What about the music? Gene Harris is a well known and oft-recorded pianist, mostly in trio format. Here we hear him "naked" and he performs with no blemish and puts the instrument through its paces which we can enjoy without encumbrance. The choice of the ten tunes is varied including tunes from the blues side of jazz to well known ballads such as "They Can't Take That Away From Me". A delightful concert that would be enjoyed by a range of listeners. It is throughout approachable music. Sit back and enjoy.

I heard a track from this on Jazz 24 from Seattle. I loved it. Gene Harris with guitar, drums and bass was great listening. So. I ordered the CD. From where Jazz 24 took the track I have no idea as it is certainly not on this CD. The whole CD is of Gene Harris solo, live. at the Maybeck Hall. He's a great jazz pianist but 10 tracks of him strutting his stuff solo is boring in the extreme. Okay. compared with the UK price of £24.00, my Canadian seller was cheap as CD and postage only cost around £7.00. Unless you are a real no-matter-what fan of Gene Harris I cannot possibly recommend this CD.

HASH(0x9a8ab690) out of 5 stars The Quintessential Gene Harris 31 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Here is Gene Harris in his best setting (outside of a club) - solo at the famous Maybeck Hall. The album is part of the ongoing Concord series of Maybeck solo performances which have featured and showcased many of today's top artists. The Boise, Idaho-based bluesman shines with material both original and familiar. From the opening tune, "Lu's Blues" (named for a neighbor's young daughter) to the classic "My Funny Valentine" and a sprightly "Elephant Ear Blues," Harris displays the versatility and sure touch that have made him a star. If I only owned one Gene Harris CD, it would probably be "Bam, Bam, Bam" recorded as part of the Ray Brown Trio series (Ray Brown on bass, Jeff Hamilton on drums and Harris' piano) - primarily because it is highlighted by the best recorded version of the Harris signature tune, "Summertime." If I could only own two Gene Harris albums, this would certainly be the other one.

HASH(0x9a8abb1c) out of 5 stars Geeeene Harris 17 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Gene Harris was the first musician i ever liked. He had such a simple style built on gospel, blues and swing. Before buying this CD, i already had owned over 20 of Gene's group CD's, whether they were with the RB trio, his quartet, an all star session, or his big bands that he has lead. after buying all of those Gene CDs, there werent many more CDs to get of him. so i got into many other pianists in the meanwhile. i got particularly attached to Art Tatum, who is THE solo pianist of the last century. So i obviously had high standards for solo playing. then i got this CD and i loved it for its contrast with Tatum's complex style.
Now about some of the songs:
Lu's Blues- this is not a 12 bar blues, but it is bluesy, ofcourse, Gene's playing is reserved here, minamalistic
Blues for Rhonda- Gene plays with a heavy, swingin bass line here, this is actually based on the 12 bar blues format
Angel Eyes and My Funny Valentine are two strange ballads that he plays, both very beautiful,
Erroll's Theme- this is from Erroll's concert by the Sea album, which is amazing, for Erroll this was a one chorus closer of 16 bars, Gene makes this into pure 12 bar blues, his playing is powerful, happy, funny,beautiful
this playing or any Gene Harris CD will make you happy

HASH(0x9a8abe40) out of 5 stars A RELAXED GOOD TIME BY A GREAT PIANIST 30 May 2013
By joeb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This Maybeck recital series by Gene Harris is just fun to listen to. Harris is a blues-oriented player who demonstrates his abundant technical abilities while still keeping the intent of the music in mind. In my opinion none of the artist's Three Sounds days demonstrate his intimate connection with piano as does this Maybeck title. Harris is a jazz player who is highly under-appreciated. Highly recommended!

More generally: I think all the Maybeck series are worth owning for the following reasons: 1) First off a pianist does not make it to Maybeck Hall unless that pianist is accomplished in his/her own jazz style and has something to say; 2) A full listening to the complete series (if you were lucky enough to have it) would acquaint you with the many styles of jazz piano; 3) The Maybeck series to my knowledge are solo only recordings. That means the pianist is not encumbered (constrained?) by playing along with a rhythm section. You hear the artist "in the raw" so to speak; 3) The recording venue is small and intimate similar to what you would expect in a Classical setting. The twenty or so in the audience have come to listen. Food and casual talk are completely replaced by the music.

There are only three downsides of the Maybeck series in my opinion: 1) Many
of the sessions are no longer available and/or too pricey (i.e., Zeitlin's Maybeck performance goes for more than $100); 2) In most cases the recording quality is excellent. However, some sides have noticeable flaws in capturing the piano audio. In particular the miking is not always optimal, especially for the bass portion of the piano. Often a muddy and bothersome left hand gets in the way of things. Miking a grand piano is extremely difficult but it can be done correctly. Maybeck engineers need to be aware of the miking issue; 3) I could be wrong but I think this is not a 9 foot piano. It's not a baby grand but it's surely not a 9 footer. That should be corrected. A properly miked 9 foot grand would give a better presentation. Perhaps the physical constraints of the room will not accommodate a 9 foot instrument.

Still, all are worth having in your collection.
