Martial Solal

Aigue Marine
A famous Solal theme, as played in trio in 1962

Jazz Frit – (? 1965)
The name of this tune is a joke about free jazz ("frit" and "free" have the same pronunciation in french ; "jazz frit" means "fried jazz")
Solal never really liked free jazz, he likes harmony and rythm too much for that. But it doesn't mean that he can't improvise freely (meaning with a great liberty). Impromptulm is a good example, solos 2, 3 etc of Jazz Frit are another :)

Great tune composed by Martial Solal. Rather complex rhythm inside. Theme + solo (unfinished, but still...)

Piano Solo

A "free" improvisation.

Que reste-t-il de nos amours/I whis you love
Charles Trénet' song, as played by Martial

On green dolphin streetLive at the Village Vanguard
I LOVE Solal's playing. I'm rather suprised to see how close he is from the theme, both melodically and harmonically, and how inventive he is in his way to play standarts.
