MUSIC REVIEW BY George Fendel, Platter Chatter

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

If you were into Kind of Blue (and who wasn't?), or if you tend to lean in the direction of what is sometimes referred to as chamber jazz, give this one a listen. Di Salvio has brought together a skilled and sensitive group of musicians, the most famous of whom is drummer Jimmy Cobb (who, you might recall, sat at the drum set on Kind of Blue). These are all original tunes, but they were written with the essence of Miles Davis trumpet and the Bill Evans piano very much in mind. And give credit to the cats who make it work: particularly Derrick Gardner, trumpet; Diego Rivera, tenor sax: Pat Terbrack, alto sax and the leader, pianist Ron Di Salvio. A quartet of singers add some extra flair to a very well arranged and well thought out listening experience.
