An unconvential European jazz hero with a fitting tribute to a true visionary: German pianist Joachim Kühn pays tribute to a much-missed colleague, friend, and his most important source of inspiration over the past few decades, Ornette Coleman. Both, the depth of the composer and the sensitivity of the player are being revealed. Kühn has shaped Colemans music in a quietly introspective manner rewarding simultaneously as both midnight mood music and a thoughtful solo recital. The Ornette Coleman whom we find in this recording is far more easily accessible than the free jazz firebrand of the early 1960s. Indeed, the jazz icon whose memory Kühn is serving here is the creator of colourful melodies with their roots in the blues. Of course, those colours are not exactly those that one might conventionally expect, and naturally also Kühn makes use of the material for his own purposes, for intuitive inspiration in the moment or to take us on his typically wild rides, but above all here are two soul-mates with a shared imperative to be creative in sound, and to use source material that is in its essence melodic. The melodies are sometimes earthy, almost traditional ('Lost Thoughts'), sometimes cheerfully playful ('Love Is Not Generous, Sex Belongs To Woman'), sometimes longing and melancholic ('Somewhere') or outraged ('The End Of The World').
