O’s Notes: Jazz sax man Bergonzi is a popular performer on the Euro jazz scene lately. His band includes two Europeans Renato Chicco (p) and Andrea Michelutti (d) with bassist Dave Santoro from CT. They are a well oiled unit that plays as a team spotlighting the leader Bergonzi. Jerry wrote all seven compositions. We liked “Splurge” for its spontaneity and full band engagement along with the mellow tones of “Wippin’ and Waulpin’.
