Second in a series of archival releases, this album represents the work of four innovative pianists that performed at the Western Front between 1985 and 2015. The record features archival performances from the legendary Anthony Davis and Vancouver renegade Al Neil from 1985’s PIANO series, as well as a Paul Plimley performance from the 1989 Vancouver du Maurier International Jazz Festival. Side B includes two pieces from Toronto composer John Kameel Farah, developed and performed during his 2015 compositional residency at the Western Front.
The limited edition LP features new cover art created by Western Front co-founder Eric Metcalfe.
“This compilation album highlights extraordinary presentations of technical facility, compositional artistry and improvisatory savoir-faire on piano —with results that are stunningly original and personal.” –Dana Reason, Ph.D
