From his friendship w/Duke Ellington (who called him his protege), to his work with the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell and Judy Garland, to his musical track record in radio, TV and film, Hal Schaefer is an incredible story.
Here he shines with kaçak bahis his own refreshingly-idiosyncratic style of elegant solo jazz piano.
…delightful…his solos are lean, unpredictable and gently dissonant…he approaches the standards in a Tatum-like manner frequently referring to their themes, altering and re-harmonizing them, and using varying textures… -JAZZIZ Magazine
