Whirlwind, 2017, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Brooklyn based trumpeter Kenny Warren has recorded as a sideman and a leader but this is the debut release for his hard bop quartet. JP Schlegelmitch (p), Noah Garabedian (b) and Satori Takeishi (d) join Kenny to perform six original pieces. The songs range from edgy improvisation on “Hugh Knees” to reflective ballads like “Iranosaurus Rex”. It in far from Warren’s folk-based work and deep inside of a more introspective jazz animal.
