[NEW RELEASES] Eldar
Virtue puts Eldar at the forefront of the contemporary jazz scene. The album is also a fitting follow-up to his 2007 Grammy-nominated album, “Re-Imagination.” Released this August, Virtue is a collection of thoughts and impressions of what the artist defines as “virtue.” The album balances his youthful energy with a new-found sophistication that mirrors his personal and creative growth. The first track, “Exposition” contains an impressive saxophone solo along with Eldar’s phenomenal piano technique. Tracks such as “Blues Sketch in a Cave” and “Blackjack” are also well worth listening to.
Whether you’re new to jazz, new to wine, or new to both, this album is sure to enchant your next romantic evening.
Label: Sony Classical
