Artist/Band:Keisuke Ohta & Bill Mays
Name:Blue Rondo a la Turk
Cat No.:FSY-511
Performed by:Keisuke Ohta (violin)
Bill Mays (piano)
Release Date:05/25/2010
Description:Collaborations between American jazz pianist Bill Mays and Japanese independent label Five Stars Records have been very fruitful and produced several wonderful CDs. Mays met violinist Keisuke Ohta at the recording of guitarist Kazuhiko Tsumura's album Ole (FSY-509). They "clicked" musically and that led to the recording of this duo CD.

Primarily known for his work in ethnic and avant-garde music, Ohta deeply loves and respects Stephane Grapelli and what he calls orthodox jazz violin. His beautiful, rich tone and passionate style, underlined by an amazing array of techniques, serve his interpretation and expression of music. Mays again proves his great skills as sensitve accompanist and imaginative soloist.

The eclectic program consists of an original each by Ohta and Mays, compositions by George Shearing, Dave Brubeck, Sonny Rollins, Duke Ellington, Django Reinharrdt, Dizzy Gilliepie and Astor PIazzolla, plus a free improvisation piece. Their chemistry and joy of making music together spontaneously are palpable, making this one of the best piano-violin duo albums I've heard to date. Strongly recommended!

Recorded at Wang Guang RecLabs, Tokyo, on December 17, 2009.
