This album seeks to imbue the music of over 100 years ago with the vigor and vitality with which it was performed when it was the cutting edge, dangerous music of its day. Too often when older styles are explored, the performer can get mired in a curator-like respect that saps the life out of the music they are presenting. Not so here.
