Randy Weston, African Village La Elaha - Ella Allah

Beside Chick Corea, Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock, Dollar Brand (Abdullah Ibrahim), Michel Petrucciani and Oscar Peterson, Randy Weston is one my favorite jazz piano player and composer.

After contributing six decades of musical direction and genius, Randy Weston remains one of the world's foremost pianists and composers today, a true innovator and visionary.

Encompassing the vast rhythmic heritage of Africa,
his global creations musically continue to inform and inspire.
"Weston has the biggest sound of any jazz pianist since Ellington and Monk, as well as the richest most inventive beat," states jazz critic Stanley Crouch, "but his art is more than projection and time; it's the result of a studious and inspired intelligence that is creating a fresh synthesis of African elements with jazz technique".
