Quite beautiful... a piano-clarinet duet by pianist Lucian Ban and clarinettist Alex Simu taken from the upcoming Free Fall to be released by Sunnyside records on 15 February that serves as a tribute to reedist Jimmy Giuffre.

There is something quite special in the rapport the pair have on ‘Quiet Storm (for Jimmy Giuffre)’ and especially the atmosphere they convey, a tingling extra element that exists invisibly beyond the simplicity of the appealing melody and its slow, hypnotic, wheeling, motion.
