Solo piano. Recorded 1989 in The Netherlands.
Michiel Braam: Oeps!

The album, for listening, right here. (YouTube.)

I'm hearing Misha Mengelberg, Ran Blake, Cecil Taylor, Sun Ra, Schoenberg, but not Monk. Check it out!

Anyone familiar with this album already? It feels like a hidden gem.

I don’t know this one but have a few nice things as part various collaborations and with BraamdeJoodeVatcher

 

he seems to come out of the Dutch piano sound typified by Misha, Guus Janssen. More Nicols than Monk but  advanced music than can bring a smile. I’d love to see him play one day.

I'm not as familiar with the Dutch (improvising) piano sound as I should be, but I really like Braam's playing on this record. What's especially notable is that he's not just playing the same "sound" from track to track. Quite the contrary. As soon as I identify a "Cecil bag," that bag explodes into something else. Exploding bags!

His large ensemble Bik Bent Braam (I think I have the spelling close) has some tremendous recordings. Growing Pains (2 CD set) is worth the search.
