Format: Audio CD
Just thought I'd write a couple sentences about this CD, since no-one else has.

Just to cover the bases, Nabatov is a pianist, and he has lots of discs available from the terrific Leo label. Rainey, of course, is a drummer. So what we have here is a set of duo performances. Nabatov is an interesting pianist because he covers a wide range of styles. Predominantly he plays free, this isn't a disc of tunes that swing, it sits in the avant-garde category. At times you'll hear some Cecil Taylor, but to write off Nabatov as just another disciple would not be fair.

These two musicians like to use the whole of their instruments. So Nabatov plays both inside (including using John Cage like prepared piano moments, brushing the strings etc.) and the keyboard. Rainey himself plays the whole of his kit too. On track 6, to be honest, I'm not quite sure what I'm hearing - a microphone and monorial speaker perhaps? But this isn't all crash and bang, Nabatov has an incredible range, so mid-number you'll hear Scott Joplin, Taylor, or Jarrett. Which is to say - he's an accomplished performer, and his imagination isn't easily tamed, he's not afraid of comfortable quarters, nor is he afraid of wading out into the depths.

I haven't written much about Rainey. I'm hoping you know of him already. He's just terrific, and really he seems as though he could play with anyone.

One final note - Leo Records have done a fantastic job acoustically. This CD sounds terrific, natural, and certainly gives you that feeling of being there in the room with the musicians.

So that's it. Those into Be Bop probably won't enjoy this. However, those into freer Jazz will like it a lot. It's not as wild as Taylor at his best, but it's none the worst for that. Instead we get a vast spectrum of emotions, sounds, and inventiveness. Fantastic.
