Lee Tomboulian - Lee Tomboulian Imaginarium album download
Lee Tomboulian's Imaginarium doesn't quite match Gilliam's ambitious, if flawed, breadth of vision-after all, Tomboulian constructs this particular Imaginarium with just a piano and an occasional accordion-but he still displays an impressive range of ideas on this enjoyable recording. Tomboulian leads a variety of bands, including the Brazilian/Uruguayan Circo and Whenevs (formerly Return to Whenever). This solo outing finds him drawing on a mix of original tunes, classic jazz and Latin (plus a Bach prelude). Most of the tunes here are solo piano pieces.
