5.0 out of 5 stars Have this one on infinite repeat on my iPhone September 11, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Very rich, with jagged, dark edges. Have listened many times and am continuing to discover.

I was predisposed to 'Insensitive' -- I'd heard him perform it live before the album came out, and it stuck with me for hours after the concert. What a gem. (Tho I just noticed the coda to Insensitive is kissing cousins to the coda of The Beatles' "I Want You (She's So Heavy)".)

This album is not going to be for everyone. I can say for myself that it's one of my favorites. Highly recommended, and catch him live if he comes to your area.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coming into own, and owning April 8, 2010
By IRate
Format:Audio CD
4 1/2

Even with a touch that can understandably lack the wisdom of subtly, Eldar's (w/ brilliant backup) breakout release of boldly played compositions is as excitingly engaging a contemporary jazz piano release as any in recent memory, definitively launching the under-appreciated prodigy as a world force of his own.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Towering Masterpiece With Vivid Fascination! September 20, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
As he continued to dazzle audiences with his impressive technique and straight-
ahead hell bent artistry during the 2000's, Eldar Djangirov (better known as "Eldar")
delivered another blockbuster hit The Virtue in 2009 where it display a jagged edge
that's capped with abject angular acoustic inventions. Again headed by his trio, he
takes a different turn on this daring masterpiece that focuses on his kamikaze-style
piano solos as it features a few horn arrangements and synthesizer solos alike, but
this one features less `synth-jazz', which help make it an equal hit for real jazz fans.
With special guest appearances by Joshua Redman and Nicholas Payton, this disc
give us a unique and challenging track set featuring classic compositions like Blues
Sketch In Clave, his studio take on Daily Living, Long Passage, and his ballad take
on Monty Alexander's Estate, which help give this masterwork it's adventurous and
staggeringly pronounced swing. We get to hear several synthesizer-driven tracks
like Vanilla Sky, which add to the high drama that makes The Virtue a timeless and
endearing masterpiece that will remain as timeless as ever for the ages. However,
this album may teeter toward contemporary jazz a little bit, there is definitely never
a dull moment as it sticks mostly to it's true colourful acoustic brilliance that makes
this one hard-earned must for any serious jazz fan or connoisseur of the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars great album August 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Showing real inventiveness - more than just manual dexterity and speed; great compositions, both harmonically, lyrically, and rhythmically. Not your usual jazz (in a good way!).
