Heartplay LP


Info

Released  2006
Format  LP
Label  Naim Label

Overview

Heartplay is a subtle and sublime collaboration. Charlie and Antonio play a combination of compositions by each other, and a beautifully sparkling track called Child's Play by Fred Hersch.

Charlie's bass sounds beautifully deep and rounded, an incredibly satisfying and symbiotic partner with Antonio's guitar. These elegant and eloquent duets are totally atmospheric and an absolute joy to listen to. The album was recorded by Ken Christianson in Naim's very own tried, tested and spectacularly proved "True Stereo" method, where the musicians play live and are recorded direct to a two track reel to reel tape recorder. The result is a unprocessed analogue recording,in which the sound of the instruments is allowed to shine without any hindrance from the procedure.

Produced by Charlie Haden & Antonio Forcione

Reviews
☆☆☆☆ Star review "...Forcione’s tone-poem Snow is Frisell-like, and Haden’s solo on his own silence confirms how much he’s always been able to express without hurrying. It’s well up with the leaders in Haden’s illustrious collection of duo encounters. ..." (The Guardian)

"...The expression of a perfect unity" (JazzWise)

"...Delightful" ( Irish Times )

"Haden is a jazz hero from way back, but Forcione is still not as well known as he deserves to be. His distinctive combination of jazz with Spanish and other European influences is always full of surprises. (The Observer)

"...For those who haven’t heard of Focione before--despite his having ten other albums out on Naim--Heartplay is a fine introduction. For Haden fans, it’s another in a growing collection of duet albums with artists including Metheny, pianist John Taylor and pianist/guitarist Egberto Gismonti that makes a compelling argument for the less-is-more approach."
