About the Album

This Richard Twardzik-penned piece is from pianist Peter Madsen's new solo tribute to many of his favorite pianist/composers, including Muhal Richard Abrams, Hasaan Ibn Ali, Andrew Hill, Herbie Nichols, Sun Ra, Cecil Taylor, Lennie Tristano, Randy Weston, and Mal Waldron. "...an extremely well-played jazz-repertory record of solo piano by Peter Madsen, entirely representative of those who never quite fit in. Mr. Madsen makes these pieces and others cohere as a solid program, a tradition of outside-jazz thinking unified by unusual structure, meters and harmonic motion. It's the most conscientious job I've ever seen of a jazz musician building an alternative canon in just one record." Ben Ratliff, New York Times
