A deeply rewarding solo recital by one of the unsung masters of jazz piano. Whether delving into the post-bop canon with Benny Golson's "Whisper Not," Thelonious Monk's "Bemsha Swing," or Sonny Rollins' "Airegin," or tapping seldom-heard entries from the Songbook such as Kurt Weill's "It Never Was You" or Ray Noble's "The Touch of Your Lips," Galper goes about each task armed with a keen rhythmic sense and a fount of harmonic knowledge. He's a jazz pianist through and through, lacking the ultra-precise technique that classical training has bestowed on some of his fellow players. But he can unleash his own kind of flash when he needs to – witness his short-and-sweet tour de force "All God's Chillun Got Rhythm." For the best glimpse of Galper's foolproof internal metronome, check out "A Kiss to Build a Dream On." Time that solid is the result of playing with countless rhythm sections, on countless bandstands. Even in a solo setting, Galper is hearing a band.

Producing a darker tone from the Maybeck Yamaha piano than do some other participants in the series, Kenny Barron gets a chance to flaunt a wider range of his influences than he usually does in a group format. Barron opens with a stride-ish "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You," which sports a few minor fluffs (this is live, folks), and then explores a number of diverse styles under the bop umbrella. Barron's "Bud-Like" has reminiscences of "Un Poco Loco," built on an ostinato bass pattern most of the way, with a witty "Bemsha Swing." As usual with Maybeck, the sound of the hall's bright, brittle Yamaha piano is brilliantly captured.

Steve Kuhn is generally not thought of as a solo pianist because he has rarely recorded in that format, but this 1990 concert at Maybeck Recital Hall is one of his most memorable releases.

This very satisfying concert CD is well-worth acquiring. ~Ken Dryden, allmusic.com

More than just a concert recording, Beirach's performance at Maybeck is a snapshot of the artist in a moment of creation. Not yet an elder statesman, but no longer a newcomer to the world of jazz, Beirach stands now at a plateau, from which he can look back on the traditions that defined his early development - the textural genius of Miles Davis, the technical rigors of European classical repertoire, the probing harmonic imagination of Bill Evans - while also mapping the horizons of his own distinctive style.

Genre: Jazz, Mainstream, (piano solo) | Label: Concord Records | Year: 1990

The first entry in the extensive series of piano solo recitals held at Maybeck Recital Hall features the great Joanne Brackeen. Although classified by some originally as an avant-gardist inspired by McCoy Tyner, Brackeen continued to grow in stature and by the late '80s had her own style. She is respectful but passionate on seven standards (keeping the melody in mind during her explorations) while her four originals are given more adventurous improvisations. […] Well worth checking out. - Scott Yanow at All Music Guide

Genre: Jazz, Mainstream, Standards, (piano solo) | Label: Concord Jazz | Year: 1990

Playing at Maybeck Recital Hall before a small but attentive crowd seems to bring out the best in many pianists. Stanley Cowell performs a well-planned program of 14 selections on this 1990 CD. On a two-minute "Softly as in a Morning Sunrise," Cowell runs through all twelve keys. He pays tribute to the stride-piano tradition on "Stompin' at the Savoy," explores some bop, Latin-jazz (a transformed "Autumn Leaves") and post bop music, plays "Jitterbug Waltz" in the style of Art Tatum, inteprets "Stella by Starlight" in 5/4 time and performs J.J. Johnson's "Lament" with just his left hand. A very interesting recital. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
