Write April 3 on your calendar because that's the day Ojos Negros, a set of duets by Dino Saluzzi and Anja Lechner, is released by ECM.
It is a stunningly beautiful piece of work — seven of Saluzzi's compositions and the title song by Vicente Greco.
They are touring behind this beginning April 18 in Eugene, Oregon. Unfortunately, the closest they are coming to me is Buffalo on the 28th, but if you get a chance to hear this CD or see them live, don't miss it.
This is my early nomination for CD of the year. If anything beats it, that will be one hell of a recording.
