Kathleen Battle and Cyrus Chestnut: The Blue Note, New York City
Carol Cooper, The Village Voice, 20 June 2012
IN 2010, KATHLEEN Battle chose a pianist and a repertoire of classical material to bring to Carnegie Hall for a formal recital. This summer, Battle decided to give the European composers a rest and instead brought a top jazz pianist to a small Manhattan supper club to help salute the roots of American popular music.
