JOHANSSON, SVEN-AKE / RÜDIGER CARL / JOE WILLIAMSON - HUDSON RIV (CD)


"In November 2001 Carl and Johansson met in Johansson's Berlin studio, grabbed the bassist Joe Williamson (see his fresh solo CD on GROB, The Ungrateful Carjacker, 536) and played a homage to New York: "No Moon at All," "The Breeze and I," "I Should Care," "You and the Night and the Music," and of course, "Autumn in New York": Glittering Crowds and Shimmering Clouds in Canyons of Steel. They interpreted a total of 13 standards, true to the original and full of respect. Recorded in two takes. For the first time we hear Carl play only piano on record, and Johansson sing only standards. And always when Sven hits his snare (and only his snare) with the brushes, there is in the middle of autumn an anticipation of the next spring." (label info)
