Eddie Daniels: Heart Of Brazil

Read "Heart Of Brazil" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

When Resonance Records' George Klabin pitched Eddie Daniels on this project saluting Egberto Gismonti, the legendary reedist was enthused yet somewhat trepidatious. Gismonti's music--a sui generis form of fantasia that proves evocative in its blending of Brazilian forms, a jazz harmonist's argot, and European classical languages--is no easy nut to crack or translate. But Daniels, of ...

Eddie Daniels & Roger Kellaway: Just Friends

Read "Just Friends" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Clarinetist Eddie Daniels and pianist Roger Kellaway are more than just friends; they're musical soulmates, connected in pulse and impulse, focused on the same syncretic sum of sounds and styles, and bound by a telepathic rapport.
