The Song Is You documents the inspired meeting of two master improvisers. Italian trumpeter and flugelhornist Enrico Rava and US pianist Fred Hersch share a love of the music's history and together explore standards including Jerome Kern's "The Song Is You," Thelonious Monk's "Misterioso" and "'Round Midnight," Jobim's "Retrato em Branco e Preto," and George Bassman's "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You." They also play their own tunes, Fred's "Child's Song" and Enrico's "The Trial," and create music freely together. It's a subtle and far-reaching performance: when jazz reaches this level of understanding and interplay, a performance becomes less about the material - however distinguished it may be - than what the interpreter brings to it. Rava and Hersch bring vast experience and a finely honed sense of jazz improvisation as a storyteller's art.
