A piano, a bass and a dark female voice singing standards live in a jazz club, what a night that must have been! Pictures of dark smoky jazz clubs from noir-movies coming into mind, a tragic hero in a trench coat sipping whisky at the bar and smoking heavily (that was allowed then, before they prohibited everything (I`m non smoking)) awaiting the inevitable (he will not live long enough for lung cancer). This here is the soundtrack. Some exciting soloing of the two greats will keep you holding the breath. Nine songs, a solo piano track and a lot of goose-pimples will be the reward for the bill. And all that in a perfect sound, rich of colour, very good soundstage and imaging, air for the instruments and the singer to breath, very dynamic, brilliant, smokeless.
