With 'Bucharest 1994', IN+OUT Records presents a very special live event by Eugen Cicero and Decebal Badila.

Eugen Cicero - critics reverently called him the man with the 'golden hands'. Over 40 years, his name stood for pianistic virtuosity, phenomenal sense of rhythm and imaginative ingenuity. Cicero developed his personal, unmistakable style, the so-called classic swing, by means of which he was able to cast mainstream jazz and classical music into a new harmonic form. He masterfully connected works from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods with sophisticated harmonic sequences from jazz and an infectious rhythm - no one who had attempted such symbioses before him achieved a similarly inspired and technically accomplished result. It is astonishing that both, followers of the jazz camp and representatives of classical european music are equally loyal to him, not least because of his tasteful and careful selection of repertoire.
With 'Bucharest 1994', IN+OUT Records now presents a very special live event by this man who has created something unique in his mediation between classical music and jazz standards. This is the first concert with exceptional bassist Decebal Badila, which was under lock and key for 28 years. 1995 Badila gained worldwide recognition with his first solo album 'Nothing But Bass'.

Until Cicero's early death in 1997, the two remained faithful to each other and played concerts and festivals all over Europe. The present recording testifies the blind understanding of the two musicians. The listener is led through a delightful, exciting and varied program that spans the classical arc from Scarlatti to Mozart to Liszt, while skillfully weaving in great jazz standards. 'Bucharest 1994' contains both entertaining, technically demanding and documentarily indispensable material from the early work of a rising virtuoso musician and the late work of an exceptional artist whom the jazz world lost far too early.
