â€˜A ROOM SOMEWHEREâ€™ SOLO PIANO Like many of the UKâ€™s jazz musicians Liam Noble is more appreciated abroad than at home. Recent performing highlights include a solo broadcast for the prestigious WDR station recorded live in KÃ¶ln, which was broadcast across six countries (but not the UK) simultaneously. Liam Nobleâ€™s first solo recording in 20 years, â€˜A Room Somewhereâ€™ on Basho Records, reflects the eclecticism of his playing and listening experience. Encompassing attempts at playing the imaginary banjo, (â€œSix White Horsesâ€), adapting Miles Davisâ€™s jazz rock style to the piano (â€œDirectionsâ€) and revisiting catchy tunes from â€œMy Fair Ladyâ€ and Edward Elgar, Noble improvises his way through a multitude of songs, motifs and themes with characteristic originality, patience and flair. "Noble is a supreme motivic improviser, in the manner of Thelonious Monk, Ornette Coleman, Sonny Rollins and, latterly, Brad Mehldau.â€ The GUARDIAN (*****)
