I don’t know squat about the Romanian composer that the pianist and bassist celebrate on their new Sunnyside disc, but I do know that their interpretations–driven by invention and flecked with both frenzy and repose–give third stream adventuring a good name. From sonata to symphony, George Enescu’s pieces are sliced in a way that lets an improvising brass/reeds/strings ensemble make hay with scores that never had jazz in mind, but lend themselves to all sorts of creativity.
