Cocktails For Two - Randy Weston - Piano A-la-mode (Vinyl, LP, Album)

9 comments

  1. Gingerbread is another Weston original, first written in "It's a bar song based entirely on flatted fifths." Randy's affection for Cocktails for Two results from his strong memory of the first time he heard it. It was a Coleman Hawkins recording with Hank Jones on piano.
  2. Jan 31,  · I only saw him once like 20 years ago myself. There's kind of like the pre-African travels Weston and the post--African travels Weston, though it's interesting to listen to even the earliest '50 stuff -- like his first album a bass-piano duo of Cole Porter tunes -- and hear his distinctive piano and arrangement style more or less in place.

  4. One of the most obscure Randy Weston albums of the 50s – and one of the most striking, too! The title and cover are a bit unassuming, but Weston's in his prime modern mode throughout – working both through his own compositions, and on some amazing remakes of older standards – all LP, Vinyl record album.
  5. The four songs featuring Weston on solo piano are primarily standards; "Little Girl Blue" is slowed to a crawl as the pianist mines its dramatic potential, while "Lover" is transformed into a rather bittersweet ballad, as if the would-be singer is having second thoughts.
  6. Jul 25,  · Through all the changes that have characterized pianist Randy Weston's career, one common thread has tied everything together. In the context of large groups, vocalists, trios, solos, African percussion ensembles, and many other permutations, Weston has always emphasized the connections that relate his music to the jazz continuum (and, of course, emphasizing his own vision of such).
