Format: Audio CD
After seeing him live at Ronnie Scott's where he announced his new album by performing Oscar Peterson's "Place St. Henri" I could wait to get my hands on Re-imagination. Compared to his previous work and live concerts this album is different, not in a bad way - it's noticeably mature and polished, but still very enjoyable.

With opening of "I Remember When" you will find again the strengths of Eldar's work. It's so easy to get carried away by his bursts of keystrokes. Original composition "Prairie Village" and "Back Home" are definitely the marvels of this album and showing him not only as gifted performer, but also as talented composer. "Tears" and "Dream song" represent a softer and quieter jazz.

Definitely recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars I have no "Yeah, but"s 15 July 2007
By Brian G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I heard "Prairie Village" on the radio, and loved it, but I didn't love it so much when I bought the CD and heard Remember When, Back Home, and South Bixel, which all seem to have very similar tempos, rhythms and feels. However, that being said, I don't think I've ever heard someone so young so good. He has a very modern sound in his ideas, voicings, and harmonies, yet there is definitely Oscar Peterson in him (he pays tribute to the giant in Place St. Henri). I also really enjoy the mix of electronic elements on this album. It makes me want to check out some more of DJ Logic's material. I loved his "standard" jazz, yet he sounds very much in his element with these more experimental, fusion tunes. So I have to say, here's this guy who's younger most of us, who seems to have much of jazz piano history under his fingers, and his biggest criticism seems to be that he's too technical, not enough soul. First of all, I'd LOVE for my biggest criticism to be that I'm too fast. Secondly, I think the slow tracks on this disc are very touching and beautiful. I don't want to be the type of person who says "Yeah, he's a great PRODIGY"; "He has so much POTENTIAL"; "He'll be one of the greats SOMEDAY." Eldar, you're already there.

2.0 out of 5 stars Eldar (piano) vs. Eldar (beeps and boops) 22 July 2012
By Marc Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are two Eldars and I know which one I don't like.

Hint: It's the newer one.

Let's start with a confession. I'm an old fart. I don't try to hide it. I like acoustic jazz. I like old jazz. Sometimes I like electric jazz, too, but I don't like them together and I can't think of a single instance where mixing them up on one CD worked.

Hence Eldar.

Now, I don't mind the kid's odd name or the fact that he looks like he's 12 years old. There are plenty of jazz guys with odder names and weirder faces. (What's with those cheeks, Dizzy?)

And I really liked his first CD from 2005, the one called just "Eldar." That super-duper-fast version of "Sweet Georgia Brown" blows me away every time. So does "Maiden Voyage" and "Moanin'" and "Watermelon Island." Although, come to think of it, all of those are covers of old jazz standards. The originals and the slow tunes -- not so much. But I do generally like the trio format and the solo piano tunes.

Then there's "Re-Imagination."

Fusion has its place. I like Return to Forever. But one thing I never heard Chick Corea do was mix his acoustic and electric stuff all on one CD. But that's what Eldar does on "Re-Imagination."

Let's start with the worst stuff. On this CD, there two short, weird electronic "pieces" with beeps and boops and buzzes. I don't get it. Then there are pieces that sound sorta-kinda like a cross between pop and jazz with acoustic piano and electric noise and some synthesizer thing in the background. One of these pieces is 8 minutes long. It leaves me cold.

And then, smack in the middle of the CD, there's this perfect track. It's a joyful, old-time piano romp on "Place St. Henri" by Oscar Peterson. If the kid left it at that, I'd be a happy old fart.

But then Eldar wanders off into some not-very-inspiring slow dreamy thing, followed by some more electronic stuff.

Look, I like Eldar. I admire his experimental streak. I love his chops. But I don't love "Re-Imagination." I hope he finds his own voice sometime soon, and I hope it doesn't include any beeps or boops.

5.0 out of 5 stars the next generation of jazz artists 14 Sept. 2007
By Annie "history buff" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I first saw this artist on a late night talk show and rarely do I "sit up and take notice" of such artists but this one caught my ear immediately. the CD was NOT a disappointment...it features beautiful arrangements and a nice selection of material. Everytime my CD player "hits" this CD....I sit up and take notice...it is just a wonderful!!! Nice to see the tradition of fine jazz continues.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a tallent 21 Feb. 2008
By Bradley B. Melin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Living in KC myself i cannot believe I have not heard of eldar until just recently. Im not a true jazz or contemporary jazz fanatic but this album shows incredible potential. Granted the ballads are generic but this guy has genuine intentions in his music and hopefully he will grow into what he has the potential to be. Overall a good cd with stints of greatness.
4.0 out of 5 stars A Special Visual Tour De Force 20 Sept. 2013
By RH - Published on Amazon.com
Basking in the success and international acclaim with two first-rate blockbuster
CD's for Sony Classical in the mid-2000's, Eldar surprised many, but disappointed
some, when he released a special kind of contemporary jazz CD in 2007. Though
he is best known as the bright young original jazz pianist who is one of the biggest
stars on the jazz scene, he had decided to try something different for the occasion
when he released Re-Imagined, where he decided to add a dash of electronic and
synthesizer solos alongside the acoustic piano solos. It was a bit of a departure of
of his groundbreaking piano artistry, he does gives the acoustic background equal
billing on a track set that ranges from the unaccompanied solos like Tears, Dream
Song and his romping version of Oscar Peterson's Place St. Henri, to a few elect-
ronic numbers (one featuring DJ Logic on the turntables). Now 20 years old, Eldar
paints scenes of his imagination as he puts a virtual paintbrush to this CD where it
feature his first rate keyboard technique as demonstrated within the contemporary
thrills and wonders of jazz. He gives the CD colour and he keep the music on Re-
Imagination well in place, although this change was worth the try and disappointed
some of his fans or admirers, Eldar will always stay true to his world class straight
ahead jazz virtuosity, which is what he specialize best in his enlightening career.
