Pianist-composer Klein alternates between duets with
metal/jazz guitarist Alex Skolnick and with Boris Kozlov,
best known in some circles for being the longtime
anchor—on upright, of course—of New York’s Mingus Big Band. It’s great to
hear Kozlov’s fluidity on 6-string electric, where he displays masterful technique,
great taste, humor, and warm yet clear tone as he and Klein travel
through spaces both introspective and rollicking.
