O’s Notes: Contemporary jazz pianist Rex Bell extends his repertoire to include The Legend of“Faust“in one act. It is a jazz opera that is indeed entertaining with both instrumental and vocal selections featuring Mary Ann Robinson and Eric Cheshire. “Lost Youth”, The Spinning Wheel” and “Walpurgis Night” are among the best in this musical illustration of the devil (Mephista) and God’s battle to influence Faust. The liner notes fill in the blanks and make this a complete work of art.
