Chiaroscuro introduces a new duo and a rare instrumental combination – trumpet and acoustic guitar. The repertoire: a program of old and new Ralph Towner compositions and duo improvisations, plus an old Miles Davis favorite, its presence a key to the musical priorities at work here.

The album was recorded in October 2008 in Udine, but the story of the Towner/Fresu alliance really ... Read more in Amazon's Ralph Towner Store

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Culled from three different Ralph Towner projects , works "works" , particularly for those of us who can not afford BLUE SUN . The three discs cherry picked are the aformentioned BLUE SUN (the title track 7:15) with Ralph on 12-string guitar , piano , prophet 5 synth and percussion . Also from BLUE SUN is (The Prince And The Sage 6:18) with Ralph on classical guitar and the prophet 5 synth again . Two tracks from OLD FRIENDS , NEW FRIENDS include (New Moon 7:21) and include Ralph on 12-string guitar , Kenny Wheeler on trumpet and fluegelhorn , Eddie Gomez on acoustic bass , Michael DiPasqua on drums and percussion and David Darling on cello . The second song taken from OLD FRIENDS , NEW FRIENDS (Beneath An Evening Sky 7:00) finds Ralph on 12-string guitar and piano and David Darling on cello . The remaining two songs are taken from the disc SOLSTICE and include (Oceanus 10:59) with Ralph on 12-string guitar , Jan Garbarek on tenor saxaphone , Eberhard Weber on both bass and cello and Jon Christensen on drums and percussion . (Nimbus 6:26) finds Jan on flute as well as tenor and omits Mr Weber's cello . Mr. Towner wrote all the tunes . Big surprise there . Worth a moderate investment if you wish to dabble and hear just a trace of these men's potential or spin a bit of a variety pack all penned by the brilliant Towner . There again , how can you go wrong ?
