CD reissue. As the title implies, Diary, Towner's first entirely solo recording, is an intimate album. It's quiet reflections get to the heart of some of his outstanding compositions which receive definitive interpretations here, conveying the impression of quot;an acoustic wonderworldquot; as Die Zeit wrote. In these diary entries the convergence of influences from jazz (Bill Evans above all), classical music and Brazilian music is fully realized in a very natural synthesis. Recorded 1973.
