How nice to find that the Goddess Error decided to give you a present (instead of her usual gifts)! Hanna was one of those players who got overlooked because he was so generous in his support of soloists and singers. I remember a very impressive NPR program of Hanna - Jay McShann duets, I think from the Montreux Jazz Festival. The time is also ripe for a CD reissue of the Alec Wilder Octets: I think that all of the 1939-40 Columbias, the pieces conducted by Sinatra, and the later Mercury ones (which I've never heard) would fit on one CD. They are quirky, delicate, hot, and meaningful music -- "Third Stream" before Schuller coined the phrase. Thanks for reminding us about Sir Roland, Marc - - -

This solo Hanna album from 1987:

is a gem and beautifully recorded. Eight out of eleven tracks are Hanna originals.

Not solo piano, but this trio performance of "Lover Come Back To Me" from a 1958 Art Ford Party really swings!

Hello,
Nice to hear you remembered Roland Hanna. I wonder if many jazz fans have a delicious CD recorded in Japan under the name "When You Wish Upon a Star" on label called TDK!.With him are George Mraz or Ron carter and Ben Riley. It's worth to look for it.
Congratulations again for your site and the magnificent interviews. Don't forget to visit Lisboa as you did for Paris and with my record collections we'll have many hours of pleasure.
Regards
Raul

Thank you for flagging this recording. I happened to be in a second-hand CD store here in Toronto, Osmosis, near Queen and University, and saw it. Given its reasonable price, $12,99, I snapped it up! Curiously, though, it was filed under M (presumably, because the cover features "Helen Merrill Presents") rather than H.
