Thierry Maillard is well-placed on his legs, when he talks and is firmly seated when he overhangs the piano keys, to tackle fine, sometimes powerful, groove, surprising arrangements. The fingers fly, the melodies fly away to return better, like so many ritornelas, to get away again. To dare to attack these luminaries of the French song, alone … lonesome on the piano : Brel, Léo Ferré and especially the great Brassens, of which he very early knew to appreciate the finesse of the melodies at the height of the words. The musician with the rugbyman’s shape shows a strong desire to fight and a lot of tenderness.

Rachmaninov was obliged to start a new life after abandoning all his possessions when leaving Russia for good in 1917. He sought his fortune in the New World, supporting his family as a pianist and giving numerous concerts. This activity generated interest from fledgling record companies, and before long Rachmaninov was working for Thomas Edison in his New York studio. These new transfers of ‘approved’ and ‘held’ made using the old acoustic process known as ‘hill-and dale’ reveal more about the instrument Rachmaninov played (probably a Lauter piano) than ever before, as well as opening out his robustly virtuoso approach to Chopin, the beautiful tone he gives to Mozart, and his breathtaking technique in Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, the longest solo work he ever recorded.

Dave McKenna made a remarkably piano solo debut in 1955 with the fifteen tunes he recorded for ABC Paramount (1-15). The remaining tracks on this compilation also come from a solo album, one he cut almost eight years later for the label Realm. Playing without a rhythm section, a key challenge for a jazz pianist, McKenna accomplished a recital of lasting value and pleasure. He plays with strength, individuality, fine beat and technique, and constant taste in all tempos. He is a wonderfully co-ordinated two-handed pianist.
