Pianist Katia Labèque is one of the most acclaimed classical musicians of our day. As well as her legions of fans across the globe, Katia's friends and admirers include Madonna, who cites her as ,"one of her favorite pianists in the world," to Miles Davis, who dedicated two songs to her on his 1985 album You're Under Arrest. In addition to Labèque's considerable success as one half of classical duo The Labèque Sisters, she has collaborated with artists as diverse as Sting, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. Shape Of My Heart is a fascinating album that brings together a selection of these collaborations alongside brand new recordings of the music of Satie, Chopin and Radiohead. The album opens with Sting's "Moon Over Bourbon Street" and "Shape Of My Heart." Here, the singer's bold emotion combines with Labèque's refined but assertive lyricism to excellent effect. Also of special note are piano duets with Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Gonzalo Rubalcaba. Labèque clearly enjoys the challenge of playing with three of jazz's finest practitioners and on these tracks Labèque proves beyond doubt that she is an adventurous, imaginative musician at the peak of her creativity.
