We gave it an A

If the ”young lion” saxophonists are getting the headlines and the money, what’s left for a gifted but not quite so young clarinet player like Peplowski? There’s time — to create remarkable CDs like The Other Portrait, which may well be too idiosyncratically beautiful for the jazz establishment. Eclectic material (including Witold Lutoslawski’s Dance Preludes) sensitively performed (with the Bulgarian National Symphony, no less), this is music that averts the jazz zeitgeist by transcending it.
