Alan Broadbent

An unsung hero of the acoustic piano, Alan Broadbent is a highly lyrical and melodic bebopper/post-bopper who has cited Bill Evans, Wynton Kelly, Tommy Flanagan, Nat "King" Cole, and Red Garland as some of his favorite pianists. Raised in New Zealand, he moved to Boston in 1966 to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. After staying on the road with Woody Herman (for whom he was a writer, arranger, and soloist) from 1969-1972, he settled in Los Angeles. Broadbent went on to work as a sideman for Chet Baker, tenor saxmen Warne Marsh and Gary Foster, and the late singer Irene Kral in the '70s, and with Bud Shank and arranger Nelson Riddle in the '80s.

The '90s found him writing arrangements for Natalie Cole, Marian McPartland, Scott Hamilton, and others, and playing alongside bassist Charlie Haden, tenor saxman Ernie Watts, and drummer Larance Marable in Haden's Quartet West -- a unique and conceptual L.A.-based group that is known for including bits of dialogue from film-noir movies between bop performances. Broadbent's excellent trio albums for Discovery in the '80s and Concord in the '90s make it clear that he deserves to be much better known as a soloist. ~ Alex Henderson, Rovi

Why, doesn't Pandora print out the sidemen on each track, or at least for the credits on each album/C.D.?? ?
It would be nice to know who we are listening to PERFORMING!. . .
I thought that was the whole point behind ASCAP & BMI, no? ......

Youre right about THAT gdh!!-Best guess is its Charlie Haden with Quartet West -yes -phenomenal bassist! -as Broadbent is a keyboard artist. Whole group is sooo 'tight'!! Classy smokin' stuff!

Who's the bassist on this cut? He's outstanding!

His piano playing reminds me of a painter using a full range of colors on his palate to bring the canvas to life.

Brilliant on every level and congratulati o n s to the guys at the board for capturing it perfectly.

Lovely and lyrical. Put yourself gently to rest while listening. Harmonically fascinating at the same time.

This guy is fabulous and he's still ALIVE. Never heard of him before. I'll be buying some of his stuff. I play a little too - personal discourageme n t keeps me away from the piano these days - such wonderful playing pulls me back. So beautiful.

I play a little, but this is truly beautifull, harmonically interesting, and rich with ideas.

I know Alan was born in New Zealand, but I love calling him an Aussie.

This is one hip Aussie. From the days when was the accompanist for the legendary Irene Kral to the present, Alan is the quintessenti a l interpreter of beautiful jazz.

What an incredible musician! Such a heartbreakin g sound on ballads. I love the voicings and intricate textures he gets out of the piano too.

I play piano professional l y and Alan Broadbent is a TOP favorite: fully harmonically - c o n v e r s a n t , beautifully honed chops, elegant vocal-worthy phrasing. The word cogent also comes to mind because I never feel like going on to another song or turning a tune off in the middle when listening to Alan play.

Oh my, he definitely is a name that should have more recognition. He knows exactly how to play with other musicians, while giving so much of his own touch and melodic fluidity.... Thank you Alan Broadbendt!

There's no more soothing sound than a tinkling piano! This guy does it right! Wow!
