Blake, Ran - Ran Blake Plays Solo Piano

SKU 34-ESP 1011
Ran's very first album, recorded in NYC on May 1, 1965.
"Ran Blake performs his own compositions and works by Ornette Colman and George Russell as well as offering distinguished arrangements of such standards as "There'll Be Some Changes Made" and "Sleepy Time Gal". Mr. Blake discovers new expressive possibilities in his instrument. This album, Blake's solo debut, has barely been heard since its appearance in ESP-Disk's first batch of LP releases in 1965. Fans and aficionados, including members of the jazz press, have clamored for it to be included in our 50th Anniversary Remaster program, citing its musical and historical importance. The slight distortion on some high notes is a small price to pay to hear this jazz master at the beginning of his illustrious career."
