Horace Parlan – Speakin’ My Piece


Another fine jazz pianist from Pittsburgh, Horace Parlan has excelled in styles both straight-ahead (Stanley Turrentine) and edgy (Charles Mingus). He’s a swinging, melodious hard bop player with subtle shades of blues in his approach, which perfectly suits 1960′s Speakin’ My Piece. Piece is a mellow blues-tinged bop quartet session featuring the soulful, agile, massive-toned tenor sound of fellow Pittsburgh expatriate Turrentine. There’s nothing too rambunctious here, just some dandy earthy jazz to relax and unwind to.
