Margy Pargy

Margy Pargy is a studio album released by jazz pianist Dave Burrell. It was released on March 9, 2005, by Splasc Records. It is a solo album and, in contrast, a week later the album After Love was released, which featured collaborations with such jazz greats as Roscoe Mitchell, Don Moye (both from the Art Ensemble of Chicago) and Ron Miller. The Penguin Guide to Jazz described it as "A quality solo set [...] The best things are standards, including a long, troublous 'Lush Life'."[1]
