...that exciting intersection of small combo creativity and big band momentum which characterizes "little-big band" performance.
ALL ABOUT JAZZ

Through the richly textured arrangements of longtime collaborator Nick Lane and a stellar ensemble of Los Angeles' finest, veteran guitarist and composer Tom Rizzo creates a swinging and wide-ranging recording of interesting standards and provocative originals. From the subtly loose groove of Ornette Coleman's, "Law Years," to the lush orchestration of Wayne Shorter's "Infant Eyes," or the buoyant swing of Cole Porter's "So In Love," Rizzo's supple guitar lines provide a central voice to a wide array of sonic moods. Along with the quartet of Rizzo, drummer Steve Schaeffer, pianist Dennis Hamm and bassist David Hughes, is a 6-piece horn section featuring saxophonist Bob Sheppard, trumpeter Bob Summers and Nick Lane on trombone.
