When two of the most accomplished, popular, and original piano voices in contemporary jazz unite, one can expect something special. But the meeting of Bob James and Keiko Matsui has brought forth the unexpected as well: a seamless, lyrical blend of jazz and classical elements that traverses an exquisite range of moods. Altair & Vega is all about rhapsodic melodies, inspiring performances, and the unqualified joy of two music masters in full flight. It's one of the true surprises of jazz year 2011.
