Humor often gets short shrift in improvised music, but Misha Mengelberg knows that it can be more profound than sturm und drang. Impromptus is an inspired and inventive solo piano romp through various short song forms. It’s filled with hairpin turns and unexpected musical jokes, as well as passages that are touching and lyrical. Unfettered fun that’s as serious as your laugh.
