Grupa Janke Randalu
Live
Jazz 'n' Arts

Kristjan Randalu and Bodek Janke are all but unknown to American jazz fans. But the visceral excitement and engrossing interplay captured on this duet CD argue for a place in the top rank of jazz innovators. The brilliant, acrobatic “Confidance” blasts off as Randalu’s piano, somewhere between Chick Corea and McCoy Tyner, meshes seamlessly with Janke’s constantly shifting blend of drums and mouth/body percussion. Standards are playfully warped and refracted, while folksongs are carried off to some un-nameable, exotic land. It’s a thrilling ride.
