Clare Fischer was truly a master musician. And here, on solo piano, he is at the state of his art. Whatever his various influences (Bach, Bartok, Ellington, Jobim, etc.), they are amalgamated into a wholly distilled and original style on this performance. Except for “Someday My Prince Will Come,” all of the tunes are blues based, but formed and infused by Clare’s inimitable playing. Recorded on the legendary Stellavox SP 7 analog tape recorder, using just two mics, this is music as its simplest and most divine. Although very easy to listen to, it is laced with deep, harmonic treasures that rewards repeated listening. A must for analog lovers, and most importantly, music lovers.
