Horace Parlan – Pannonica (1984)

HoraceFCGood early ’80s trio session with pianist Horace Parlan working alongside bassist Reggie Johnson and drummer Alvin Queen.

The material, mostly standards with some originals and ballads, isn’t overly ambitious, but Parlan’s dense, strong blues-influenced solos and good interaction among the three principals keeps things moving.

Recorded live at the “Domicile”,
Munich/Germany on February 11, 1981
