“Great. Really good. What now?” enquires a delighted Bill Bruford at the end of a number What now indeed? The residency at the Jazz Café felt fresh and different yet paradoxically recognizable and familiar, suggesting that P1 were in many respects the missing link between 1974 and 1994. Despite Mr. Clueless of Camden interrupting Robert’s first KC-related stage announcement in over 13 years, nothing could take away from the fact that it had been an amazing week of momentous improvisations with the fourth and final evening being particularly strong. This gig represents both a completion and a new beginning as Bill takes his final bow on the KC stage.

Jazz Cafe is an ongoing series of albums, specially designed for the first-time jazz buyer - except that you don't need a mortgage! At The Movies was always a good place to hear great tunes that later inspired great jazz versions. The films also sometimes featured jazz musicians on the soundtrack (like Henry Mancini and Shorty Rogers) and people like Louis Armstrong and Fats Waller got to make their first international appearances on celluloid.
Compilation of piano jazz compositions performed by jazz grands - Oscar Peterson, Erskine Hawkins, Thelonius Monk, etc…
