Rifftides readers asked if it would ever be available, so Bill Mays and I offer a performance of our History Of Jazz Piano project at no charge. Following a good deal of attention to technical detail and a thorough audio remastering, the concert is a free download on Bill’s website at this internet address (that link will take you there if you click on it).
We have performed the History three times in various parts of the world and plan to do further versions of it at festivals. The photograph shows Bill and me accepting roses following the performance at last year’s Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival. For now, the 2015 presentation lives as a digital presence on the web. Again, go here to see Bill’s announcement and get instructions for downloading both halves of the two-hour concert, free of charge. This project is close to our hearts. We hope that you will enjoy hearing it as much as we enjoyed doing it.
