Going Home for One of a Kind

Record company keeps promoting the latest Don Airey solo album with posting the title track One of a Kind:

Meanwhile, some time ago Don released another solo album without much fanfare. That album is called Going Home. It is the jazz piano album that Don started mentioning he’s working on since a few years ago. The album is self published and can be ordered through Don’s website (please be patient — it is more often down then up lately).

    I bought this a while ago (tour merchandise). It has some spectacular piano playing on it. Don is extremely technically adept, but he is not soulless, there is humour and adventure in his playing plus a bow to tradition. Unlike Jon Lord whose solo albums could often (Windows being one great exception) be described as “pastoral” (bordering on kitsch in some parts – I loved the man and have all his solo albums, but he could be a real musical sweet tooth in his solo stuff), Don is more cutting edge. Highly recommended.

    In fact, this is better than what Purple delivered on their last album. Great tune and sound!

    Needs to leave Purple and go solo with his own band……most likely in a year when they retire.
