An impressionistic blend of jazz, its freedom of improvisation, and the power of minimal music. Chris Gall has consistently expanded upon the original, stylistic boundaries of jazz more than any other German pianist in recent years. With combinations of jazz and indie rock, post-bop and world music, he wowed audiences from the famous Montreux Jazz Festival to Jazzbaltica. Piano Solo is Chris Gall's first solo piano recording. The album includes a tribute to Debussy and an enchanting variation of Yann Tiersen's film music classic "La Valse d'Amélie." Gall constantly develops new ideas and creates music that is calm like the sea in the distance, dazzling each wave.
