Milan, Paris, New York: Finding John Lewis is a superb piano trio album by Sir Roland Hanna Trio, dedicated to the classic pianist John Lewis. On this release, Hanna is joined by George Mraz on bass and Lewis Nash on drums. The music here is stylish and alluring.
Sir Roland Hanna was one of the major artists in jazz and one of the most flexible pianists of any generation. Born in Detroit, Michigan, Roland began private piano studies with Ms. Josephine Love at an early age. After graduation from Cass Technical High School and a two-year stint in the US Army, he continued his musical studies at the Eastman and Juilliard Schools of Music. He then followed with a mega-mile career journey, performing in concert halls and clubs in the major cities of the world. He was knighted in 1970 by then-President William V.S. Tubman of Liberia for humanitarian services to that country.
Overall, a genteel and refined session.
