Album Review

Since the 1950s, Boston-based third stream jazz pianist Ran Blake has made some of the most cerebral piano jazz albums around. Most effective in a solo or duo format (his most famous records were made with the late singer Jeanne Lee), Blake's style is marked by alternating stretches of near-ambient minimalism and choppy, percussive runs that he aptly terms "outbursts."
