CD Review: Randy Klein's Two Duos "What's Next?"

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.

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.
