Recording Date: November 26, 1979

Horace Parlan has recorded many albums for SteepleChase since moving permanently to Copenhagen in 1973. Parlan tends to sound at his best in a trio where he can draw inspiration from his sidemen, so this often-sparse set of unaccompanied piano solos, despite some good moments, is not his most essential outing. However, Parlan’s chordal style is quite distinctive on the five jazz standards (including “Alone Together” and “Lullaby of the Leaves”) and his own “Musically Yours,” and his fans will be interested in what was his first purely solo date; another record issued later on (The Maestro) also resulted from the same day.
