Description

"Hang the classifications, and bring on more jazz art songs," —Terry Blain, Specialist to the Star Tribune (BBC Music Magazine, Opera Magazine U.K.

It was an unlikely partnership: a jazz pianist/composer and international award-winning Schubert vocalist, but the sparks of Jeremy Walker and Clara Osowski‘s artistic collaboration appeared the first time they performed together. The result was Haunted Blue—music by Walker with poetry by Walt Whitman, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and lyricist Greg Foley. APM/Minnesota Public Radio’s New Classical Tracks observed the album was comprised of “songs that may reflect the future of classical music” and asked, “If Franz Schubert were composing songs today, would they sound like the songs heard on this new recording?” 

"All the works revel in spectral zones between light and shadow, loss and connection, classical and jazz." —Classical Minnesota Public Radio

"They are certainly not 'crossover': The term is a tad demeaning and does scant justice to the subtleties and innovations achieved by Walker in his richly suggestive new cycle.” —Star Tribune
