Earl Hines was one of the greatest keyboard innovators in jazz. This compilation includes three sessions from the Hangover Club in San Francisco (1954), featuring Hines playing his famous Boogie Woogie On St Louis Blues, Piano Man, Rosetta and You’re The Cream In My Coffee, a session from Aalborg in Denmark (1965), featuring a medley of some of his own compositions, and a studio recording from New York (1974) featuring Harold Arlen standards including Over The Rainbow and Come Rain Or Come Shine.

The enclosed programme not only does an excellent job of representing the music of Earl Hines, it also shows him at a number of different stages in his career. A must for any Hines fan!

Rating Review
Customer Rating In his notes, Brian Priestley uses the phrase ‘the joy of discovery’ about Earl Hines’ earliest recordings. Actually, it’s the same feeling you get by listening to the last 45 minutes here, with Hines, alone in a studio in 1974, rhapsodizing on six songs by Harold Arlen. He treats the songs like they are his personal property (and at the same time completely fresh to him), changing keys (and sometime chords), interjecting double-tempo runs or rubato passages, in short, putting a stamp on the music that is as strong, inimitable and personal as that of Art Tatum. The six 1954-tracks by Hines’ sextet are less exciting in their rhythm’n’blues inclinations, but the Arlen tunes are breathtaking stuff.
