About the album
Enrico Rava - Trumpet, flugelhorn | Ran Blake - piano
They only appeared on stage one time together for recording: Enrico Rava, the most well-known European trumpeter, and Ran Blake, the American pianist with an influence on numerous contemporary musicians that can hardly be overestimated.
Hazelwood Music Production recorded the exceptional concert at the Frankfurt South Train station in 1999. Ten songs, ten standards. The composition, which Enrico Rava contributed ("Certi Angoli"), can also be called a standard in the meantime. In addition, songs such as "I Should Care", "Nature Boy", "There's No You" and even "Tea for Two" were interpreted very originally. All songs radiate a high degree of melancholy without triggering sadness thanks to Rava's unmistakable sound and Blake's just as unique phrasing.
After the CD was no longer available from between the lines for many years, we are very pleased that we can now re-release it!
