'Provenance' is the new album from two legends of Australian music – a survey of intimate ballads that showcases Vince Jones and Paul Grabowsky's superlative craftsmanship.

The title refers to the returning to roots that this album represents. Vince and Paul first worked together in the 1980s, when Grabowsky was music director to Jones; Provenance marks a renewed collaboration between the pair after several decades apart. But the word also describes the music which the duo chose to record: ballads that showcase the essential elements of their craft, elements that have been the foundations of their astonishing careers, pared down to the intimate combination of piano and voice (or occasionally piano and flumpet – a hybrid of flugelhorn and trumpet).

'Provenance' is "a collection of timeless songs with beautiful songs," as Vince puts it. The album begins with Rainbow Cake, composed by the pair in the 1980s. "Oh My Love," written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, takes on new poignancy; and from there the album presents classic songs from a variety of genresas well as a number of Vince's own compositions.

Vince Jones needs no introduction to any music-lover. Renowned for the beauty of his voice and his trumpet playing, he is a genre-defying artist who has played thousands of gigs across the world, recorded dozens of best-selling albums – and has never been afraid to comment on world in which we live from an unashamedly idealistic perspective.

Paul Grabowsky has won an ARIA Award every decade for the past forty years (including in 2014, for Best Jazz Album). As well as being a pianist of the utmost sensitivity, he has been a director of some of Australia's most prominent arts festivals, the composer of nearly 30 feature film scores and several works of music theatre, the founder and leader for 19 years of the Australian Art Orchestra, an executive at the ABC; he is currently at Monash University, where he heads up the Academy of Performing Arts.
