Recordings The Montpelier Arts Center’s JAZZMONT Records is proud to present its sixth live recording, Dick Morgan, Live at Montpelier.

The recording faithfully captures the jazz legend’s mastery of the piano and the incredible range and variety of his arrangements and features a superb Quartet: Dick Morgan on piano, Steve Abshire on guitar, Dave Einhorn on bass, and Bertell Knox on drums. Morgan’s group performs in perfect unity, despite wild and sudden shifts in volume and cadence. The recording also captures the boundless energy of the performance from the driving version of Boston Chicken that opens the concert to the closing Amen. Other selections include jazz standards like “Don’t Be That Way,” as well as jazz treatments of popular songs like “the Windmills of Your Mind,” and “Autumn Leaves.” There is also a beautiful rendition of the traditional gospel tune “This Little Light of Mine” with Dick and the audience doing the vocals.
