||The Way I Am
||"When [his] recording session for the CD 'With Duke In Mind' was finished, Dado felt very relaxed and happy. ALl the pressure was gone. He started to fool around on the piano and then fell into a blues. It was tremendous! What could we do to preserve this great music? There was tape and time left and a decision was quickly made. Dado agreed to record some additional 'after hours piano', just playing what came into his mind, just improvising, just playing 'the way he is'. Peter Pfister let the tapes run again and you can hear the superb results on this present CD." - Jorg Koran, Producer.|
||"When Siegfried [Mohr] visited Jon Weber in Chicago...he called me and raved about the pianistic potential of this young man. To prove it, Jon played to me over the phone. I was dumbfounded! He was an extraordinary talent. ...My decision was quickly made. Jon Weber had to be recorded by Jazz Connaisseur." - Jorg Koran|
||Lucien Barbarin and the Henri Chaix Trio
||"We felt that Benri Chaix' approach to jazz would perfectly fit with Lucien Barbarin's natural, unspoilt talent and that Henri Chaix, being as experienced as his is, would give the young man from New Orleans a reliable and inspiring support.|
With the group were Henri Chaix' usual and favorite accompanists, with whom he has recorded before: Alain Dubois on bass and Romano Cavicchiolo on drums.
In our opinion this musical meeting proved to be a very happy one. The recordings have that special flavor and charm that is to typical of New Orleans music." - Doris Koran
||Sir Charles Thompson
||Playing My Way
||Wild Bill Davis
||Greatest Organ Solos Ever!
||Inspired by a conversation with Wild Bill Davis about the lack of recorded organ solos, the record company staff returned the man to the radio studio where he had recently completed some overdubbing work. This CD is the result of that late night (11pm-2am) session. The vocal mike was left on throughout, to capture Bill's singing and humming.|
