These two recordings of jazz standards were made when Alex was asked to play piano at a private party at a residence near Baker Street in central London. The piano they had at the house was a brand new never-played-before 6-foot Steinway grand piano
. It was fresh out of the factory and the pedals were still wrapped in plastic ! This is one of the finest pianos anyone could wish to play, so he thought it was worth making a few recordings during the gig.
Tracks featured here are:
- House of Jade by Wayne Shorter
- Blue in Green by Miles Davis
