Recorded at two sessions in late April 2005 and released by CAM Jazz exactly two years later, Solitude is a gratifying reminder that at the age of 77, Algerian pianist Martial Solal was still a formidably creative improviser. The album, which begins and ends with complementary bookend versions of "Darn That Dream," is sprinkled with standards by Ellington and Gershwin and a '60s pop tune, as well as three Solal originals. One of these is titled with an abbreviation of an old Italian saying which translates as: "He who goes softly, goes safely.
