[image-1] Monday afternoon’s Wachovia Jazz concert at the Sottile (May 28 at 5 p.m.) featured the elegant bandoneón/cello duo of Dino Saluzzi, a charming, 71-year-old Argentine bandoneón player, and Anja Lechner, a seriously talented, young German cellist known best for her work with the Rosamunde Quartet, in an intense program of pieces off of the their [image-2]newly-released collection, Ojos Negros (on the Munich label ECM Records). “This is music from the heart,” exclaimed Saluzzi. Indeed.
P&C‘s Jack McCray enjoyed the chamber music feel, despite the lack of “swing.”
