Roger Kellaway - Windows (Angel) By: Roderick Nordell

Pianist Kellaway renews his longtime bond with the cello in ``Music for Cello & Jazz Quintet.'' In ``Love of My Life'' and ``In My Heart,'' the limpid piano and yearning cello are like pearls on velvet. ``Eleventide'' (it's in 11/8 time) recalls Steve Reich and Philip Glass in its surge of repeated rhythms. In ``Windows,'' the piano's intimate conversation with a melodious tabla (drum from India) develops into a layered delight of cello, tabla, marimba, and piano - not your average jazz quintet sound.
