A FEW REVIEWS OF DENNY ZEITLIN'S SOLO PIANO PERFORMANCES

"Denny Zeitlin explores Thelonious Monk. Who could ask for a more compelling evening? Pianist Zeitlin has been an adventurous jazz artist since the '60s, producing frequent performances that challenge the seemingly limitless skills of his improvisational talents... the encounter between Zeitlin's soaring imagination and Monk's always intriguing compositions will surely result in an evening of memorable solo jazz performances. One can only hope that the program will be recorded..."
Don Heckman, The International Review Of Music

"...Zeitlin delivered a riveting solo performance."
George Goodman, New York Times

"In supreme command of the keyboard...he employs striking dissonances, he constructs extraordinary edifices of harmonics, he can be marvelously pianistic, with a velvet subtlety of touch. He is an original...Denny Zeitlin stretches jazz piano beyond any hitherto defined limits."
Don Freeman, San Diego Union

"...He didn't show his brilliance through his technique (which he has), but through subtle improvisation, advanced and finely-tuned harmonic development, and a stupendous internal sense of meter...Denny Zeitlin's solo piano was the unpretentious highpoint of the festival."
Munchner Merkur (Munich)
