Claire Ritter: Soho Solo

Read "Soho Solo" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Almost any jazz pianist you can think of has taken a shot at the solo recording. Keith Jarrett explores uncharted territory with his wholly improvised approach.

Claire Ritter: The Stream of Pearls Project

Read "The Stream of Pearls Project" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Disco decisamente piano-centrico questo The Stream of Pearls Project di Claire Ritter. Perché nonostante in buona parte dei diciotto brani compaiano a turno violoncello, fisarmonica, percussioni, vibrafono e banjo il protagonista assoluto resta il pianoforte.

And that sharp focus is laid ...

And still it holds together, thanks to the music's spare beauty and Ritter's always interesting melodic vision.Ritter delivers here on solo piano and ...
