A sharp-edged session of tremendous trumpet and tenor interplay — served up by the legendary quintet of Gianni Basso and Oscar Valdambrini! The album’s got a sound that’s as hip as it looks — a great approach to 50’s modern jazz, done in a style that’s equally influenced by west coast cool and east coast hardbop! Valdambrini’s trumpet is beautifully measured throughout — with echoes of both Kenny Dorham and Chet Baker — offset by some deeper grooving on tenor from Basso, who plays with a strength and command that few American players of the time could match.
