Joel Zelnik — Live At Steinway Piano Gallery ... CD Think (Japan), 2010. New Copy .... $16.99 24.99 A great recent recording from pianist Joel Zelnik – the player who's probably best remembered for his rare 60s session Move! Joel still sounds great here – working in tight trio formation with a groove that's openly lyrical, and nicely swinging – lots of those forward-thinking moments we remember from before, but with a new sort of sensitivity that's mighty nice – more than enough to get him ranked right up there with some of the better-known aging piano talents of his generation recording today – like Steve Kuhn or Denny Zeitlin! Titles include “Dream Dancing”, “Turn Out The Stars”, “The Opener”, “Old/New Waltz”, “You've Changed”, and “How Deep Is The Ocean”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
