From the time he left the Louis Armstrong All-Stars in 1951 until his triumphant 1964 concert at New York’s Little Theater, Earl Hines was the forgotten giant of jazz piano. Much of this time was spent at San Francisco’s Hangover Club, where the great keyboard innovator worked in an inappropriate Dixieland context. His mammoth technique and unpredictable imagination never flagged, however, as the two albums he recorded for Fantasy during 1955-56 make clear. This compact disc, which includes the memorable Earl “Fatha” Hines Solo set in its entirety, finds the pianist ruminating over originals, many of which he made famous in the Twenties and Thirties, as well as surveying the music of his friend Fats Waller in a most sympathetic quartet setting.
