Solo debut piano album from Israeli pianist Nitai Hershkovits

This is the latest in the long and illustrious line of solo piano albums from estimable German label ECM — a tradition that stretches back to the astonishing 1970s recordings of Keith Jarrett, whose landmark triple LP, Solo Concerts: Bremen/Lausanne, has recently been reissued on "audiophile vinyl" to mark its 50th anniversary.

On his debut album for the label, the 35-year-old Israeli pianist Nitai Hershkovits adopts, similar to Jarrett, a "largely improvised" approach to the challenge of maintaining color and momentum over the course of 50 minutes or more. Unlike Jarrett, he has made his task considerably easier by offering a suite of 16 beautiful musical miniatures, most of which are around the 2- or 3-minute mark; there are also interpretations of Molly (mother of Nick) Drake's poetic Dream Your Dreams and Duke Ellington's gorgeous The Single Petal of a Rose.
