What the world does not need is yet another slavish tribute to the great Fats Waller, one in which his original arrangements are re-created and his personal style respectfully reproduced. Aki Takase, being the slightly slantwise genius that she is, conceived of something very different for this project: a tribute album that would incorporate some of Waller's compositions alongside pieces by other New Orleans composers and original pieces by Takase herself -- some of which would allude slyly to the great man's sound, and others which would bring a completely different flavor to the mix. Her helpers include bass clarinetist Rudi Mahall, trombonist Nils Wogram, and the even more slantwise genius Eugene Chadbourne, who contributes vocals, banjo, and guitar. Familiar tunes like "Viper Rag" and "Handful of Keys" are given slightly twisted but delightful arrangements, and other period pieces like "Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans" rub shoulders with Takase's own numbered intermezzi, which are often contemplative and harmonically spiky. The vocals tend to be a bit goofy, and some of the arrangements start out with long sections of skronky, atonal group improvisation. But the whole album hangs together surprisingly well and serves its purpose admirably: it celebrates the spirit of Waller's music without aping it thoughtlessly. © Rick Anderson /TiVo

Pianist Aki Takase and vocalist Lauren Newton have a lot in common. Both have long left their respective native countries to make Germany their home and are familiar with the piano-vocals duet format. Takase has had a fruitful collaboration with singer Maria João and Newton has followed the same road with pianist Patrick Scheyder. Therefore, it was just a matter of time before their paths would cross as they did on that September evening in Berlin that apparently conjured images of Spring in Bangkok. One can only regret that both artists did not meet earlier judging by the results of this first encounter. They produce sparks throughout a varied and tasteful program that is alternately whimsical, pastoral, lyrical, abstract, and dark, even chilling "Absturz und Wiedergeburt." A truly collaborative effort, the two musicians take turns to move the music in any given direction, but what is most impressive is Takase's and Newton's capacity for renewing themselves. They neither get into a rut nor rely on well-tried tricks. The pianist makes the best use of all the resources her instrument has to offer while the singer's voice goes through countless mutations -- sometimes at the drop of a hat -- and on occasions hints at her operatic background. Newton seldom resorts to actual words, but the German language lends itself well to her vocalisms ("Das Scheint Mir Wichtig"). This live date confirms Takase's ability to tackle many styles and could very well be Newton's most accessible work to date. Highly recommended. © Alain Drouot /TiVo
