Track of the day is the absorbing title track of Ways of Disappearing to be issued next month by the Sunnyside label, a solo piano record from the acclaimed US-based Romanian pianist Lucian Ban which was co-produced by Mat Maneri. Recorded in Transylvania a year ago the album includes originals and standards by Annette Peacock and Carla Bley. Ban says: “I have always felt closer to a line of jazz pianists that I see as radical, people like Ellington, Monk, Paul Bley, Keith Jarrett, Andrew Hill and a few others who challenged the ways piano can be played both in a group or solo setting … for me they pushed the language beyond its defined borders.”
