Ride Symbol, 2020, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Tenor saxophonist Vito Dieterle has a deep, warm tone that bodes well over nine, mixed tempo, classics. It’s tough to miss with music by legendary songwriters like Strayhorn, Monk and Porter. Vito is spot on along with his band: Kris Kaiser (g), Ben Paterson (organ) and Aaron Seeber (d). They start softly on “Dream Dancing”, swing on “You Said It”, cook on “Minor Chant” and entice on “Chelsea Bridge”. Dieterle successfully breathes new life into these oldies and keeps it fresh allowing the entire band to contribute meaningful notes.
