Thomas Fonnesbæk & Justin Kauflin: Danish Rain
The title track opens the album with a delightful duet from Thomas Fonnesbæk and Justin Kauflin. Fonnesbæk’s thumping bass serves as the rhythm of the falling rain to accompany Kauflin’s virtuosic piano improvisation. Together they intimately interpret “Imagine.” Fonnesbæk’s plucking bass sings John Lennon’s lyrics while Kauflin’s comping piano supports his partner and vice versa. The entire album gives jazz listeners an hour of relaxing down time.
