Man on the Street (August 6 / DD172 / EMI), the new album by pianist and composer Harold O’Neal, is a tribute to his mentors, from the great Bobby Watson and Andrew Hill to his old karate instructor Norman Harris and Uncle Pete O’Neal, founder of the Kansas City chapter of the Black Panthers. “It was from all of these experiences that I learned the true gift of the journey lies within,” adds Harold. “The internal process.”
Recorded in Brooklyn and written by O’Neal, Man on the Street features the dynamic quartet of Marcus Gilmore (drums), Joe Sanders (bass) and Marcus Strickland (sax), alongside solo piano pieces (“Gossamer’s Lilt”, “Seraglio”) that continue in the spirit of his critically-acclaimed solo piano album, Marvelous Fantasy (“strange and gorgeous…sits somewhere between Ravel’s Miroirs and Duke Ellington’s great 1953 album Piano Reflections. – The New York Times).
