Capri, 2004, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Convergence is Greg Gisbert (t), John Gunther (sax, fl), Mark Patterson (tb), Eric Gunnison (p), Mark Simon (b) and Paul Romaine (d). Each of the musicians except Paul contributes original compositions including a couple of challenging time signatures that are well managed by the rhythm section. The brass has a full, rich sound that is not overdone. It is best stated on “Five Years Ago”. We are particularly impressed with the work of Gisbert on trumpet. His notes are precise while imparting a warm melodic tone, definitely one to watch.
