Al Haig Trio: One Day Session- Vogue & Esoteric Recordings (CD: Fresh Sound)Al Haig Trio: One Day Session- Vogue & Esoteric Recordings (CD: Fresh Sound)
Al Haig (1924-1982) was still on his twenties when he became one of the first influential bebop pianists, having played in the Forties in groups led by Diz, Bird, Wardell Gray, and Stan Getz among others. Haig’s was a singing approach to the piano as well as a swinging one. He played with unusual sensitivity and taste, always lightly energized by an easily flowing pulsation. Al was no stomper, but he was far from fragile. This long one-day session was originally produced by Henri Renaud, the French jazz pianist, when he visited New York in the very early part of 1954. Al’s melodic improvisations get firm, unobtrusive support from drummer Lee Abrams, and bassist Bill Crow. This set was especially valuable because, in the early Fifties,Haig had been all-too-infrequently heard on records and, at 31, he proved he still had an important place in the modern jazz field.

Al Haig: Plays The Music Of Jerome Kern (CD: Inner City)
Al Haig was one of the greatest pianists to emerge from the bop era. In fact, he was rated by many as number 2, only behind Bud Powell who originated bop piano, His renditions of Jerome Kern's songs from the late 1970s pay full respect to the melodies, following them closely. Such standards as "Dearly Beloved," "The Folks Who Live On The Hill," "The Song Is You" and "All The Things You Are" are among those that benefit from Al Haig's thoughtful renditions. This is beautiful music that serves as a double tribute to Jerome Kern and Al Haig. (DIscovery Records)
