Review :
An overlooked gem from the early years of Schema Records -- a straight jazz set that crackles with classic modal energy! The group's really a great one -- and features some tremendous trumpet from Fabrizio Bosso -- plus trombone from Gianluca Petrella, piano from Stefano Bollani, and saxes from Gaetano Partipilo -- mostly all players who've really gone on to make a name for themselves after this set! There's a really classic feel here -- somewhere between the Italian jazz of the Basso/Valdambrini group, and some of the best hardbop on Saba/MPS. The group falls into none of the cliches that you might expect -- quite a surprise at the mid 90s time of the session, but a bit more common in today's club jazz era -- and the production here is wonderful too, just right for the 60s feel of the record.
