Eddie Higgins: Time On My Hands

Artists / Instruments:
Eddie Higgins: Solo Piano

"Although the year 2000 marks my 50th year as a professional and I have been recording since 1957, Iīve never made an entirely solo album. Playing solo piano presents both challenges and opportunities. Obviously, thereīs no place to hide: youīre the rhythm section, the soloist and the arranger all rolled into one, so every note counts. On the other hand, the freedom is complete: if you feel like a change of key, tempo or meter (or even of song!) itīs up to you without having to explain anything to anybody. Iīve been lucky in my career in the sense that Iīve been able to work solo, duo, trio (a lot), with horns and with singers, one of my favorite formats. All of them have their own delights, but playing solo on a great instrument for an appreciative audience ranks pretty high for me." - Eddie Higgins.

Here is what the critics have to say:
"This pianist has great feeling for a song and treats every piece with respect and good taste. Producer, Mat Domber, insisted that Eddie confine his choice of solo material to songs he had never recorded before. This CD is highly recommended to those of you who love pianists who never lose the melody. This album is no. 6 in the Arbors Records Piano Series." -- Richard Bourcier
