Grossman (piano), Ken Filiano (double bass), Alex Cline (percussion). A reissue of the Remember CD on the US Magnatone label from 1994, with two additional bonus live tracks from the same recording dates (1989-92). "I think of myself as a jazz player, and my music as a natural extension of the jazz tradition. What I'm doing is completely free improvisation ('composing in real time') with nothing predetermined. I've had a lot of experience playing many different kinds of music and several different instruments, and since I tend not to waste anything, it all shows up somewhere in the music I'm playing now." -- Richard Grossman. The following quote from Richard Meltzer was written at the time of the initial release of this music: "What more can I tell you? That the guy was without doubt the most important jazz pianist to die since Thelonious Monk, or jazz figure at large (cut off in full creative flight) since Albert Ayler? I say that, you'll think I'm nuts. But enough about dying... and 'importance'. Artists like Richard Grossman don't have a gift, you have a gift: you receive it. Receive this now that you may wake other mornings, many mornings, and not only breath but SIGH."
