On May 23rd, Richie Beirach is 70. Live at Birdland New York demonstrates impressively that the American piano great, far from being in decline, is a lively presence in jazz. Legends Randy Brecker, George Mraz and Billy Hart are on the album, as naturally is violinist Gregor Huebner, Beirach s congenial partner for the past twenty years. Huebner is also celebrating a big birthday on the same day: he is exactly twenty years younger than Beirach. Both men share the imperative to combine the European classical canon with modern jazz, so alongside original compositions there are also works by Bach and Bartók.
