Venus - VHJD-207 - 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl
Jazz piano arrangements of classical compositions on 180-gram vinyl LP!
Gifted pianist Steve Kuhn has enjoyed a career revival since signing with Venus Records. Pavane For A Dead Princess — a daring jazz rendition of classical compositions — has become huge in Japan and is considered one of Kuhn's definitive works. Kuhn's soft and clever piano turns selections by Ravel, Chopin, Tchaikovsky and Faure into exciting jazz. The treatment is so effective that one might not realize at first that these were originally classical pieces.
