Signals is an album by American jazz pianist Mal Waldron featuring performances recorded in Baarn, Holland in 1971 and released on the Freedom label.[1]


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars stating "this set features a solo outing by Waldron that fully displays his continually evolving style. He had moved away from his earlier Thelonious Monk influence to an extent and developed his own brooding style which made expert use of repetition. Waldron's four originals give him plenty of opportunity to stretch out".[2]
