Ale Demogli / Hill Greene / Oscar Giunta: 3:30
This guitar trio—occasionally expanding to a quartet—hails from Buenos Aires, Argentina. 3:30 presents a balanced mix of four standards and five originals, including the opening Robin/Ranger "If I Should Lose You," taken up-tempo. Guitarist Ale (Alejandro) Demogli, bassist Hill (Hilliard) Greene and drummer Oscar Giunta make up this unit, with an assist from guest pianist Pepe Angelillo on several tracks. Demogli won a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music, later attending the New England Conservatory.



Angelillo shows that he is a skillful player of bebop figures, and Greene's "Me Long Go" inexplicably begins with some electronics, evolving into an introspective piece featuring piano and guitar On Victor Young's "Beautiful Love," Angelillo plays in the fashion of Keith Jarrett, humming to himself while soloing. Charley Parker's "Moose the Mooche" is a rapid fire trio romp, while Demogli's "Misterious Space" again opens with electronics, then settles down to a Jim Hall type melodic statement from the guitarist and a sensitive piano segment, before turning the heat up. The album concludes with a sensitive Demogli reading of Van Heusen/Mercer's "I Thought About You."
