ADRIAN IAIES: Vals de la 81st & Columbus Sunnyside, 2008

[ Pronunciation: ah-dree-YAHN ee-AH-yes ... that's my best guess, anyway ]

MODERN JAZZ – This is rich, compelling music from Argentina by way of New York, with bandoneon (accordion) player Michael Zisman adding a heady tango flavor to Iaies’ robust piano. But the emphasis is squarely on the jazz side, with Iaies and Zisman having plenty to say and a seamless rapport between their well-crafted solos. It’s a treat.

All fine. Fo’s Picks: 2, 3, 7, 8, 10

1. 7:06 – evocative after-hours drag: an urbane ballad w/ gently flowing solos
2. 5:59 – upbeat bop: cool driving rhythm, great bandoneon & piano solos
3. 4:31 – Thelonious Monk meets Astor Piazzolla: piano/bandoneon duet
4. 7:51 – slow, heavy-hearted ballad with a tender, lyrical center
5. 6:13 – piano/bandoneon duet: darkly twisting, then somewhat bluesy
6. 6:48 – solo bandoneon/piano set up introspective ballad, very nice stuff
7. 5:41 – uptempo, swinging waltz; a French musette feel, bright solos
8. 6:49 – standard ballad, beautifully done: blends pathos and optimism
9. 9:04 – sophisticated take on Wayne Shorter classic; long solo piano break
10. 5:38 – soft bandoneon/piano duet: romantic, then picks up a nice swing
