John Hicks

John Hicks is one of the true titans of the keyboard. In his latest HighNote Recording, he pays tribute to Erroll Garner by passing this music through the prism of his own interpretive genius, with the refracted light casting a unique glow on these hauntingly beautiful songs. Yes, the ever-present "Misty" is here, along with "Left Bank Swing". The main interest, however, is the seldom heard numbers, such as "Solitaire", "Paris Cries", "Passing Through", "Something Happens" and the title track, "Nightwind". John's Billy Strayhorn Songbook (HCD 7019) was a big hit with radio, reviewers and public alike. This record, documenting the work of one of America's greatest unsung composers, has a ready and waiting audience.
