CAP, 2006, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Kool
O’s Notes: This is a blend of cool jazz, bebop and fusion that will excite listeners on both sides of the Jazz Rulerª. It’s a trio with Andy Laverne (p), Danny Gottlieb (d) and Fabian on bass. But there are a few special guests who add more spice. They all get funky on “Hunt’s Groove” especially guitarist Corey Christiansen. The warmth of Claudio Roditi’s trumpet is displayed on “It Might As Well Be Spring”. It is intoxicating! They swing hard on “Falling Grace” led by Christian who also takes an excellent bass solo on “Michelle”. This one is a winner.
