Universal, 2004, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Latin
O’s Notes: The Trio is pianist Jose Negroni, Nomar Negroni on drums and bassist Jaime Rivera. Each of the players has a formidable game which is very apparent from the opener, “Los Duendes”, a syncopated tune with a rapid pulse. Jose wrote 8 of the 10 tracks, the balance being cool covers of “Summertime” and “Sentimental Mood”, the latter with a warm sax solo from Ed Calle. It’s a nice balance culminating the fusion laced “Rev It Up”.
