O’s Notes: Russell Ferrante is a California native, a world class pianist, composer and educator. His affiliations look like a Who’s Who in music! His latest project is Inflexion, a trio recording with bassist Michael Valerio, and drummer Steve Schaeffer. This is a mature version of jazz-fusion that includes a taste of modern jazz that is centered around Ferrante’s strong piano work. Rich tones and dynamics draw you into the music. There are eleven selections plus two bonus tracks including cool covers of “Rhythm-a-ning” and “Isfahan”. We also enjoyed “57 Chevy”, “How Deep Is The Ocean” and “All The Things You Are”.
