So far, we did not have too many "piano & bass" labels on this blog's catalogue, and now we double the amount, thanks to three new releases.
Keith Jarrett & Charlie Haden - Jasmine (ECM, 2010)***
Watch the promo clip for the album
Cecil Taylor & Dominic Duval - The Last Dance Vol. 1 & 2 (CJR, 2010) ****
The perfomance was recorded at the San Francisco Jazz Fest in 2003. Volume 1 brings over one hour of free-flowing music. Volume 2 is the rest of the program: 25 minutes in total, starting with Duval on arco, adding a more collaborative and balanced dimension, a situation which is maintained for the second piece, when Duval moves to pizzi again.
Watch "Bridge Works" from the concert.
Agusti Fernández & Barry Guy - Some Other Place (Maya, 2010) ****½
Watch a great visual evocation of the music by Fernández and Guy.
