American Alex Harding, considered to be one of the greatest jazz baritone saxophonists of our time, presents his latest album DARK BLUE, featuring Lucian Ban, the Romanian-born pianist from New York.
DARK BLUE offers a unique blend of compositions and improvisations, highlighting trends of 21st century jazz, while inspired by traditional jazz, blues and European chamber music.
From avant-garde blues to free ballads, which evoke the sounds of Archie Shepp and Sun Ra, from spontaneous improvisations to original pieces, DARK BLUE is an artistically mature work of a duo made up of two artists who communicate with each other perfectly using the language of modern jazz.
