Notes and Editorial Reviews

In addition to Jacob's complete studio Stravinsky collaborations with Ursula Oppens, this release offers a live 1979 concert held at the defunct New York rock club The Bottom Line, where the pianist intersperses insightful, entertaining commentaries between jazz-influenced works. His respectful yet relaxed conversation with guest pianist Aaron Copland sets the stage for a joyous romp through the Danzo cubano for two pianos.

-- Jed Distler, Gramophone [12/2011]
