Recorded live in Switzerland at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1974, Perugia exemplifies the incredible expertise of American jazz pianist, Roland Hanna. The audible thunderous applause after jazz standards such as ‘Take The A Train’ and ‘A Child Is Born’ truly brings the stunning solo performance to life. Hanna’s breathy solos and warm scales in the title track ‘Perugia,’ make it clear the pianist is in a class of his own. The album was remastered for vinyl by Dave Gardner at Infrasonic Mastering, and pressed on audiophile-grade vinyl at Pallas Group in Germany.
