MUSIC REVIEW BY Suzanne Lorge, DownBeat

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

4-STARS On Immigration Nation, versatile trumpeter and composer Charlie Porter utilizes modern jazz vernacular to make a social statement about contemporary life in the United States: Our forebears and our music all derive from someplace else. Rather than preach, however, he shows how it works. On Part I: Leaving Home, the first six tunes, he celebrates the rich rhythmic vitality of American jazz forms, and on Part II: New Beginnings, he explores the synthesis of differing musical thoughts. A former student of Wynton Marsalis, Porter's playing is fluid, expressive and magnificent.
