Product Description

For over 10 years pianist Walter Lang has been part of the Munich jazz scene. He was a founding member of the U.S. drummer Rick Hollander's quartet, with whom he has toured Europe, Japan and America and recorded five CDs for Concord Jazz and other labels. His activity as a freelance pianist has brought him together with, among others, Lee Konitz, James Moody, Chico Freeman and Don Menza.

On `Softly As In A Morning Sunrise' Lang performs an eclectic mix of modern jazz standards and his own original compositions, all of which, feature his powerful contemporary jazz piano sound.

Walter Lang - (piano), Nicolas Thys - (bass), Rick Hollander - (drums)

Format:Audio CD
I can't find a single review of a Lang album on this site; extraordinary in view of his undoubted skills. However I'm basing this on only two CDs, this and Ashiya.

He seems to be tinged with so many others, Evans and Jamal for just two. I suppose you could say that he's slightly pedestrian but careful listening shows he has his own thing; and very much so, almost as if he's trying to rid himself of influences.

Good listening but airing it too often would be a mistake.
