MUSIC REVIEW BY George W Harris, Jazz Weekly

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Trumpeter Charlie Porter gives a twelve song tribute to the dreams and journeys of immigrants with a band that sounds like they've imbibed from the waters of Horace Silver. Together with Nick Biello/ts, Oscar Perez/p, David Wong/b and Kenneth Salters/dr, Porter gives vintage hard bop sounds and harmonies on the sleek "Divergent Paths" and the Senor Blues-pulsed "Contradictions Within." Vocalist Sabine Kabongo adds thoughtful insights to "Second Chance" with some dramatic bass work by Wong on "The Unexpected." Biello has a strong beefy tone on the elegiac "Chant" and Perez is lyrical on "Deepening Sense." A Blue Note blue plate special from Ellis Island.
