Kapustin: Blueprint - Piano Music For Jazz Trio
Format: COMPACT DISC
Jenne, Meinhard; Krupp, Jakob; Dupree, Frank
Kapustin uses jazz as his musical language and then composes quasi-improvisations that sound as though they stemmed right from Oscar Peterson’s or Erroll Garner’s fingers. He is one of the few who were able to have the structures of composition and liberty of improvisation come together to such an organic whole.' After his first successful release with the piano- and double concerto of Russian composer Nikolai Kapustin (Capriccio C5437), Frank Dupree presents the original jazzy solo piano pieces of the still unknown master, enlarged with additional bass and drums. The genres of Jazz and classical music finally melt in a fascinating pure Jazz-Trio formation.
