Ramin Partovi Explores A Song From 27 Angles

Not a star yet, American guitarist Ramin Partovi‘s name may be familiar to those who saw him in a band on “Squirrel & Donkey Show” or were passengers of a commercial flight which he captained, yet if elite musicians treat him with respect that should mean something. Having a relationship fall apart 11 years ago, Ramin came up with a song and, later on, with an idea of inviting various players to perform on its structure. Titled “27” now – as there are exactly this number of its versions – the piece spans a double album now, and among Partovi’s friends featured on “27 Faces Of A Broken Heart” – as the record’s called – are such jazz luminaries as Simon Phillips and Jimmy Johnson who, alongside Carl Verheyen, drive most of the tracks, Oz Noy, Mike Stern and Scott Henderson.
