Adventurer and journalist Simon Reeve heads to Cuba to find a communist country in the middle of a capitalist revolution. Two years ago Cuba announced the most sweeping and radical economic reforms the country has seen in decades. From ending state rationing to cutting one million public-sector jobs, one of the last communist bastions in the world has begun rolling back the state on an unprecedented scale. Simon Reeve meets ordinary Cubans whose lives are being transformed, from the owners of fledgling businesses to the newly rich estate agents selling properties worth up to $750,000.

A set of duets by trombonist Nils Wogram and pianist Simon Nabatov, The Move features seven compositions by one or the other musician. The playing is pretty free in spots but coherent and thoughtful, exploring sounds, specific ideas, and surprising melodies. One certainly does not expect the ragtime melody of "Itapo" to suddenly emerge seven minutes into the piece. Wogram's tonal distortions throughout the set are both impressive and humorous and he often utilizes multiphonics. Nabatov is right with Wogram, taking a long free improvisation at the beginning of "Herbie and Pierre," acting as a co-equal during the duets and pushing the trombonist. Although the packaging could have been better, the inner sleeve not only lacks liner notes but does not say which musician plays which instrument. The music is continually intriguing, shifting between conventional vamps and much freer interplay.

"The Right Thing to Do" was another major single, and one of her most gorgeous ballads ever…

Simon Lepper accompanies with sensitivity and flair; an award-winning pianist specialising in vocal accompanying, Lepper is a regular recital partner of Cargill's.
