    Oscar Peterson has thoroughly assimilated not just every piano style that preceded him but every ensemble idiom as well: swinging big bands, gospel, European classical, and, of course, the blues. Having mastered all of this, Peterson found the standard piano trio the perfect vehicle for exploring all of these types of music. In this classic LP, the crowning achievement in his greatest year, Peterson doesn't just explore these styles, he conquers them.

    African Piano

    South African pianist-composer Abdullah Ibrahim, still performing at the time of this 1969 live album under the pseudonym Dollar Brand, unleashed a mastery so enticing on African Piano, it's a wonder that any of the folks at the club where it was recorded had the resolve to treat it as background to their dining. By the same token, reinforcement of that fact by constant ambient noises renders Ibrahim's performance all the more sacred by contrast.

    Amid a sea of chatter, cleared throats, and sudden intakes of breath, he breaks the surf with the gentle yet hip ostinato of "Bra Joe From Kilimanjaro," working meditative tendrils into the bar light. Over this his right hand brings about an explosive sort of thinking that spins webs in a flash and connects them to larger others. With clarion fortitude, he drops bluesy accents along the way: a trail of crumbs leading to "Selby That The Eternal Spirit Is The Only Reality." Ironically (or not), this is the most solemn blip on the album's radar and blends into the ivory tickling of "The Moon." Here Ibrahim's heartfelt, dedicatory spirit comes to the fore, proving that, while technically proficient, he possesses a descriptive virtuosity that indeed evokes a pockmarked surface lit in various phases, harnessing sunlight as if it were skin in dense, vibrating harvest. The kinesis of this tune is diffused in the tailwind of "Xaba," which then flows into "Sunset In Blue," in which Ibrahim's ancestral awareness is clearest. The level of respect evoked here for both the dead and the living lends a ritualistic quality by virtue of its tight structuring, which despite hooks at the margins flies freely in its magic circle. "Kippy" is a smoother reverie with flickers of flame. A beautiful amalgam of measures and means, it slips an opiate of reflection into its own drink. After this, the intense two minutes of gospel and downward spirals that is "Jabulani-Easter Joy" takes us into "Tintinyana," thereby crystallizing the album's flowing energies. Tracks bleed into one another: they runneth from the same cup, their spiritual resonance deep and true.

    African Piano is a gorgeous, thickly settled album, but one that is always transparent when it comes to origins. Such is the tenderness of Ibrahim's craft, which speaks with a respect that transcends the sinews, muscles, and eardrums required to bring it to life. It finds joy in history, connecting to it like an Avatar's tail to steed.

    Nina Simone and Piano! (Speakers Corner)

    Musicians certainly don't have it easy with record companies. First of all they must struggle to even get a contract. Then, when their debut release has proved a success, they are bandied around from one arranger to another in all the recording studios imaginable. But having been treated with such sounds as a snappy combo, meaty bigband, and smoochy string orchestra, there at last comes an opportunity for some artists to be themselves again.

    This album wholly concentrates on Nina Simone and demonstrates that she does not need help from anyone else in order to bring her strikingly expressive voice into the limelight. Accompanying her in her songs about loneliness, identity crises, and desires is her faithful friend, the piano, which she masters equally as well as her voice. The piano parts are far more than just casual accompaniments. Varying from number to number, they range from a classical, bluesy sound, to late-Romantic fervour, right up to avantgarde aggression. And yet all these pieces have something in common: filled with bizarre beauty, they portray a complex personality with all its ups and downs.


    • Nina Simone (piano, vocals)

    Recording: 1969 in RCA Victor's Studio B, New York City, by Ray Hall

    Production: Stroud Productions, Inc.

    About Speakers Corner

    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.

    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.

    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.

    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.

    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.

    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Player Piano

    Includes Download Card

    Player Piano is the second full length from Davye Hawks Memory Tapes. It was, like its predecessor, the highly acclaimed Seek Magic, recorded at Dayves home studio in rural New Jersey. While Seek Magic was quite an electronic sounding record with lots of dance music tropes, Player Piano is all about the melody.

    Simply put, there are lots of catchy tunes here: sing-along choruses throughout the album and songs that feel very immediate and accessible, despite consistently dark lyrics that describe a disconnected mindset and a profound sense of isolation.

    The template for Player Piano was that it would be keyboard-based psychedelic girl group songs, a sort of Motown suicide note. Largely eschewing modern beats this time in favor of drums that sound like The Kinks 60s records, there are still the spaces of modern R&B, along with '50s doo wop, krautrock and a couple of nods to Aphex Twin.

    Painting pictures is how Rick describes his playing style and how he visualizes music, and this album paints a very vivid, lush landscape for the listener to explore.

    And Piano

    Released on 180 grams audiophile vinyl with original artwork!

    Nina Simone said that she'd rather have people remember her for her album Nina Simone And Piano! than for her surprise hit 'My Baby Just Cares For Me'. And when you listen to the album, you fully understand why. This is Nina Simone stripped bare; an introspective, intimate album about death, reincarnation, loneliness and love.

    The simple piano arrangements and poignant vocals make you creep closer to the music - and the artist - with every listen.

    Though commercially unsuccessful, this album was released to great critical acclaim in 1969, and it is a true gem in Nina Simone's body of work. It has remained a rarity over the years and now Music On Vinyl would like to give it due attention by making it the first of a few Simone releases waiting in the wings.

    Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson pays tribute to the master of minimal music, Philip Glass. Ólafsson was one of a handful of young pianists selected by Glass to perform all of his Etudes together in London, and the reviews were ecstatic. The Financial Times claimed, "Best of all was Ólafsson in the supersensitive stillness of Etude 5." In addition to the Etudes for solo piano, the album includes reworks of the originals for piano and string quartet. This recording is now available on vinyl.

    The Ship's Piano

    The Ship's Piano is an 11-song album of subtle, drifting piano ballads written by Darren Hayman while he was recuperating from a fractured skull after being mugged.

    In November 2009, I had this thing happen to me, where I ended up in hospital with a fractured skull. For a few months I felt constantly dizzy and was diagnosed with some deafness in one ear. Sharp, loud noises bothered me greatly. I was told to rest and do nothing; but who knows how to do that? Music always helps when Im ill, so I started to make the simplest, quietest music to help me recuperate. I avoided any jagged edges. I kept imagining the sounds I wanted as round and smooth, like well-worn pebbles. Lyrically, I also found myself eschewing conceptual and metaphoric character-led songs. I started to write the simplest and most direct words in the first person, something I have avoided for a few years. - Darren Hayman

    Rachmaninov Piano Concerto

    The Russian pianist Svjatoslav Richter is now regarded as one of the most outstanding artists of the present day. He was born in 1915 at Zhitomir in the Ukraine, the son of a musical family of German extraction. His father, who had been trained at the Vienna Conservatoire, was a highly regarded pianist and music teacher, who also did some composing; his mother was a gifted amateur musician. The artistic atmosphere of the family house had a decisive influence on the development of the brilliant boy, who was an excellent pianist by the time he had reached the age of eight. Ten years later he gave his first piano recital in Odessa, where he worked for a time as a chorus repetiteur. At the age of 22, he went to Moscow, where he completed his training under one of Russia's foremost piano teachers, Heinrich Neuhaus. For many years, Richter confined his activities as a piano soloist to Russia and eastern Europe. In 1959, however, he traveled by way of Helsinki to western Europe, where a few recordings had already made his name a legend. His concerts in the western world were sensational successes whose repercussions were felt for months afterwards, and he celebrated his greatest triumphs of all during his tour of the U.S.A. in 1960, traveling right across the continent to Los Angeles and San Francisco.

    Brahms: 10 Intermezzi For Piano

    Gould was prouder of this recording than almost any other: "It's the sexiest interpretation of Brahms's Intermezzi you've ever heard-and I really think it is perhaps the best piano playing I have done. You know what an incurable romantic I am anyway."

    2. Intermezzo No. 2 in B-flat minor, Op. 117 - Andante non troppo e con molta espressione

    Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1

    Cut from the Original Analogue EMI Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios

    Pianist John Ogdon is backed by the Philharmonia Orchestra lead by Sir John Barbirolli on this audiophile recording of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto alongside Symphonic Variations by Cesar Franck.

    The 1962 International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition, held in Moscow, had joint winners: Vladimir Ashkenazy (then still a Soviet citizen) and the UK's John Ogdon. Ashkenazy was signed up by Decca and went on to carve a brilliant career for himself in the West and is still with us, John Odgon was signed by EMI and also enjoyed a brilliant career as a pianist noted for a phenomenal technique and deep musical sensibilities. He was also the composer of over 200 works, including 4 operas, orchestral and choral music, 2 piano concertos and many works for solo piano. However, in 1974 he suffered a nervous breakdown and displayed symptoms of bipolar disorder but was nursed back to health and performing by his wife and piano duet partner Brenda Lucas. He had become very active again recording and performing before being tragically struck down by pneumonia as a result of undiagnosed diabetes in August 1989.

    Recorded on 17 and 18 December 1962 at No.1 Studio, Abbey Road, London with legendary producer Victor Olof and Ronald Kinloch Anderson, and engineer Robert Gooch.

    Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS82 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional 'advance' playback head, making the cut a totally analogue process.

    Pressed on 180g vinyl to audiophile standards using the original EMI presses by The Vinyl Factory in Hayes, England.

    In the original June 1963 review in the GRAMOPHONE, Thomas Hearns was torn between the two versions of the same work by Ashkenazy and Ogdon that were both released and reviewed together:

    "It is in this [first] movement that Ogden excels. His opening is grander (helped by a recording full in body); elsewhere he alternates exquisite poetry with glittering brilliance and some wonderfully skittish delicacy... the sheer richness of the Philharmonia's strings or the recording quality gives them the more glorious sound. If I'm really pushed to a recommendation... I think Ogden has it."
