Horace Parlan (American-Danish jazz pianist)

~ Person


Yet another Mingus protégé success story, Mr Horace Parlan is a talented, bluesy and energic pianist, born under the influence of Bud Powell.
First gravitating in and around the Mingus posse (playing with Booker Ervin, Roland Kirk...), Parlan then took a flight on his own, recording a serie of excellent Blue Note, then a number of impressive and acclaimed sessions for Steeplechase after he moved to Europe.

Beginners who want a soft start may begin with the late and excellent Glad I Found You on Steeplechase, while hardbop over-eaters who tasted Parlan in Mingus formations will just grab everything. ;)
