Kellaway, Roger & Eddie Daniels
IPO, 2009, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Swing
O’s Notes: This is a powerful duo, Daniels on clarinet and Kellaway on piano. Both are well-accomplished musicians with a high level of respect for each other. They share the stage playing as A Duet Of One. The program includes four originals from Eddie, two from Roger and four standards. “Slow Dance” is a showcase for Eddie at a relaxed pace. The interplay on “I Want To Be Happy” is excellent as they feed off of each other’s energy. It is typical of several of the songs on the CD and it is balanced by ballads like “Blue Waltz”. These guys had a ball playing and it spills into the listening experience.
