There has been no doubt about Earl Hines place in jazz history. No musician has exerted more influence over the course of jazz piano jazz history than has Earl Hines. With Hines, the last ties to ragtime fell away and a whole new concept of keyboard improvisation took shape. Earl’s first European tour as a soloist began in 1965. This CD consists of previously unissued titles from that tour, taped at Aalborg’s East Park Jazz Club.
