Chris Anderson is one of the unsung heroes of modern jazz piano. A revered figure among musicians, largely for his role as mentor to a young Herbie Hancock, Anderson has long been hindered by illness from aggressively pursuing his rightful place in the jazz limelight. As Charlie Haden poignantly states in the album's liner notes, "Chris is risking his life with every chord, that's how much it means to him." Although he has performed with everyone from Charlie Parker to Sun Ra over the course of his lengthy career, Anderson remains mostly unknown even to serious jazz fans. One hopes that this outstanding new duo effort with bass master Haden on the British Naim label helps to earn him some richly deserved acclaim.

An absolutely beautiful recording of two virtuosos. While bassist Charlie Haden may set the stage with his deep acoustic tone, the architect is the harmonic master pianist Chris Anderson. His resume includes a lengthy position as Dinah Washington's pianist and he served as Herbie Hancock's teacher. This is one of his rare recordings as a leader and, to our ears, undoubtedly his best. Recorded at the Cami Hall in New York in the summer of 1997. (Source: musicdirect.com)
