About the album
Recorded in Spring 1990 at the Kurtheater in Baden Switzerland, a lovely intimate venue in the heart of a charming town not far from Zurich. It has been the location for many of Arild WiderØe's Jazz in der Aula concerts, a series that goes back to 1964. On this occasion the event was 'Piano Night,' and making his Baden debut, Montreal's Oliver Jones. With the solid American bassist Reggie Johnson and the creative and observant drummer, Ed Thigpen Oliver presented a wide-ranging programme - some standards a few originals, some ballads and blues. Here is a fully mature talent, in command of his instrument and the history of jazz.
