A Child Is Born Najponk

Najponk brings here another outstanding collection of recordings rooted mostly in jazz traditions, this time as a solo pianist. Next to jazz classics (Cole Porter, Thelonious Monk) we have contemporary music (Pat Metheny), instrumental version of pop music (Beatles), bossa nova (Tom Jobim) and many more, all as greatly performed by Najponk, in a crystallic and pure form.
