Sir Roland Hanna has released both jazz and classical albums, but this may be his most successful attempt to form a seamless blend of the two forms of music. On this album, Roland Hanna, Ron Carter and Grady Tate play nine tracks — eight written by classical composers, one Hanna original, and suprisingly enough for a piano trio session, not one blues. Schubert’s “Serenade” swings like mad, Dvorak’s “Going Home” sounds like a pop tune with a funk beat, Hanna’s own “Like Grains Of Sand” and Rubinstein’s “Melody In F” make for great bossa nova! Other highlights include Chopin’s “Prelude Op. 28, No. 20”, which is a superb feature for Ron Carter, and a suprisingly fresh version of Mozart’s “Elvira Madigan, Concerto No. 21 C Major K467”.

Surprisingly, these new “songs” sound natural and even familiar, as if they are jazz standards. A fascinating, new jazz vocal album.
