"Heart to Heart" Alan Broadbent's new solo piano album
(Published: May 20, 2013)
2-time Grammy Award winning jazz pianist, composer and arranger Alan Broadbent has long been a major force behind the scenes in jazz, whether it was accompanying Irene Kral on some of the most exquisite vocal albums ever recorded, contributing arrangements to Diana Krall, Natalie Cole, Jane Monheit and Sir Paul McCartney or playing piano for Charlie Haden's Quartet West.
14 CD‘s released under his own name are proof that he is not only working in the background. 4 of his own recordings earned Grammy Nominations, „Best Improvised Jazz Solo" in 2010, 2006 and 2005 and „Best Composition" in the year 1997.
Alan has just been mentioned in the French magazine "JAZZMAN" as having given the best concert of the year 2012 for his solo jazz piano performance at the St. Emilion Jazz Festival.
It's now 22 years ago that Alan recorded his first solo jazz piano album "Live at Maybeck Recital Hall, Vol. 14" and as it has been the only one so far, it is time for the successor called "Heart to Heart".
