Mal Waldron: a singular pianist

During the 50s, Mal Waldron accompanied Billie Holiday, John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, Charles Mingus and many others. This musician is unique and doesn’t belong to any school. We will sample his recordings from the 80s that he did for the Black Saint and the Soul Note labels. We will hear him playing solo, but also with Chico Freeman, Steve Lacy, Anthony Braxton, Enrico Rava and many others.
