His best work IMO is his debut recording on Pablo. Dunno if it was ever
released on CD.
Holger, I respect you opinion but I do differ with you. I own the LP
you mentioned above. Although his playing is respectable on it, ("It
Could Happen to You," is the name of it) , I think his playing and
concept have both changed quite a bit since that time. His later style
somewhat mirrors a guitart's approach to Bill Evan's own piano
approach. He has also broken away from his reliance on Ed Bickert's
single line style, as displayed on the Unison record with Bickert and
also the Concord CD with Bickert. Lorne's style seems more free and
complex than it was previously though he still retains Bickert's
capasity for chordal voicings. I rarely listen to the Pablo LP anymore
as I much prefer his later playing. Lorne doesn't consider the Pablo
LP to reflect where he is today, according to an interview I read with
him. I would agree to agree with his assessment.
All the recommendations made before are great, and I agree that this
one is a killer album as well. I remember how shocked I was when I
first heared his version of 'It Could Happen To You' on that album.
Probably sounds "in" now, but at the time, it was pretty novel.
