Description:One day in September of 2003, Russian-born pianist Vladimir Shafranov went into the studio with his regular trio based in Helsinki, Finland. Five hours later, which included one hour of down time for piano tuning, they left the studio. It is hard to believe that all 12 songs in this album all "happened" in such a short time, but they were.

Shafranov has made many strong albums, but this one is particularly satisfying for those who cherish strong, driving kind of swing. The songs are so artfully chosen. Antonio Carlos Jobim's beautiful melody of "Este Seu Olhar (These Eyes of Yours)" grabs you right away. Very American "Russian Lullaby" by Irving Berlin follows.

Horace Silver's "Cape Verdean Blues" is on fire, and Bud Powell's "Celia" sizzles. Shafranov even manages to throw in the achingly beautiful melodies of "Spartacus Love Theme" and Chopin's "Nocture." If you are a fan of good piano jazz, you will cherish this album for a long, long time.
