Product details

Paul Grabowsky's latest album for ABC Jazz represents a landmark in the career of one of Australia's finest-ever jazz musicians.

Solo is Grabowsky's first solo album, and features all the hallmarks that have made him one of the world's foremost jazz instrumentalists and composers. This is jazz for the connoisseur: rich, engaging, full of allusion and wit. But - like The Bitter Suite (recorded with the Paul Grabowsky Sextet and released by ABC Jazz in May 2014) - this is also jazz at its most seductively approachable, music that you'll want to hear again and again.

The smooth and beguiling Angel, one of Paul's best-loved compositions, opens the disc; from there we're taken on a tour of styles and textures, from the rich complexity of Helix to the evocative The Last King of Poland. This album promises to be one of the most significant jazz releases of this generation.

Duration: 68 min.
