We sample the artistry of late Jazz guitarist Barney Kessel in "Two Way Conversation," a series of duets with bassist Red Mitchell. Also, another duet from American Composer Lou Harrison, featuring guitarist David Tanenbaum and percussionist William Winant. Later in the evening, Duke Ellington and Estonian composer Arvo Pärt find common ground via the piano, in two serenely simple masterpieces: "Single Petal of a Rose" and "For Alina."
Also Featured Tonight:
Arnold Dreyblatt / "Lapse"
Bob Mintzer / Quartet No. 1 in Three Movements
George Phillip Telemann / Concerto No. 6 in A Minor
