John Salmon, pianist

“John Salmon’s jazz arrangement of ‘As Time Goes By’ by Herman Hupfeld was a hit with the larger-than-normal audience. Pianist Salmon started with a straightforward playing of the hit song from Casablanca and began to embroider it before it was taken up in turn by Steve Haines on double bass and Thomas Taylor on drums. Each player had his chance to shine, cadenza-like, and the ensemble improvisation was on a high level.”

“Salmon played splendidly, showing from the outset the outstanding pianism that has made him one of our finest mid-generation artists. It is apparent that Salmon can play superlatively well just about anything he decides to take up.”
