Mark Little, piano
I must say that Mark Little's piano style is different from any other Jazz pianist that I have come across - supposing it really is Jazz?
The music, both known and original, is played in a reflective, introverted, sad, wan style which
has a simplistic warmth but is occasionally animated and also has odd alien notes creeping into the musical pallet.
It makes for pleasant enough listening although it can become sleep inducing.
In his sleeve notes, poted British Jazz musician John Dankworth promoted the pianist, which may indicate that the recording deserves a more academic appreciation.
