Reviews

 

01/06/1997 Steven A. Loewy, Cadence, USA

"Perhaps a bit disparate, but, in truth, it makes for a pleasantly diverse program, the three parts evidencing the same sensitive touch. Dickenson mines the tradition and uncovers some unturned stones.......the Norwegian folk pieces are played in gorgeous technicolor sound, the notes resonating dreamily. The non-Ellington American jazz portion...is played with a touch more panache, each a gem. Only the trio version of 'Darn That Dream' is played at a super fast clip, which is handled well. The other take, performed by Dickenson alone on piano, contrasts starkly, the tempo slashed, with beautiful sounds reigning".

 

01/05/1997 Paul Hale, Organists' Review, UK

"A superb jazz pianist... he cunningly transcribes Ellington's dense textures down to their very essence and lets the exquisitely voiced flutes of the Marcussen (pipe organ) do the rest. If you love jazz in this generally Ellington style you will relish this unique release".

 

01/04/1997 Graham Colombé, Jazz Journal International, UK

"...The trio tracks reveal Dickenson as a resourceful pianist somewhere between Peterson and Tristano with a percussive touch and a sure sense of swing. (The three-four rhythm of Frank Rosolino's 'Blue Daniel' is especially well handled.) The solo piano tracks from five years later mostly present Norwegian folk melodies which caught Dickenson's attention and which he develops with the help of his jazz background".
