Often stated but not often executed, this solo piano set is well recorded and so direct that it sounds like Ziegler is playing just for you---in real time. The protean, recent Grammy winner cuts to the heart of why his orchestral and group works all work so well.
A stellar, sitting down piano recital in which he recrafts a bunch of his own classics, and of course Piazzolla’s, this is as good as it gets and should be heard by all no matter how they feel about tango, instrumental and other musical types that might not be on their normal radar. Killer stuff throughout.
