UK pianist Howard Riley, in over three decades of fiercely individual, virtuosic music-making, has produced over a dozen solo albums, but few rival this one for improvisational imagination, power and sheer musicality. His vigorous, cluttered, densely allusive approach demands extremely close attention, but the rewards are rich, varied and lasting.
