CD Review: Ernie Krivda 

Blues for Pekar (Capri)

When Harvey Pekar passed away last year, we lost one of our most talented, most unorthodox contemporary storytellers. But we also lost one of the world's most passionate jazz fans. Pekar once called Cleveland saxophonist Ernie Krivda "one of the greatest ... in the world." The musician repays that honor with this hour-long tribute, a back-to-basics collaboration with the Detroit Connection ensemble and trumpet players Sean Jones and Dominick Farinacci. Blues for Pekar mixes classics with Krivda originals for an old-fashioned bebop collection featuring some dizzying improvisation. It's jazz for jazz lovers. And Pekar would definitely approve. — Lydia Munnell
