"Imagine the world's most profound cocktail pianistwistful, yet utterly unsappy and given to quiet storms of weirdnessand you'll get a good idea of Ran Blake's sound. Tonight the 76-year-old stops by an off-the-beaten-path midtown venue to celebrate a new disc, Grey DecemberLive in Rome, and to honor the late, great Abbey Lincoln." Time Out New York

About Grey December
Grey DecemberLive in Rome captures Ran Blake on a recent European jaunt in December 2010. Although one of his albums was recorded in a movie theatre and another in a train station, this is Ran's first live concert recording in front of an audience in a proper venue. The performance includes several new Ran Blake compositions that appear on record for the first time, as well as standards. The intensity and magic of Ran Blake's live performance is now here for us to enjoy and marvel at, again and again.
