The Jimmy Bruno Trio: Live At Birdland II

By Published: | 1,927 views
The Jimmy Bruno Trio is joined by Scott Hamilton on Live At Birdland II, the exciting follow up to Bruno's first edition of Live At Birdland. The set, replete with standards and originals ranging from "Reticulation" composed by the guitarist, to the all-time Latin favorite "Poinciana" creates a spontaneous personal statement by the trio. Bruno's ability to improvise shines through on "Broadway" and also features several of his better known arpeggios. This song represents the first collaboration with Scott Hamilton who constructs tenor sax phrases over Bruno's chord changes in a dynamic relationship of scales to chords.The 10-track CD is an exhilarative representation of Bruno's solid improvisational techniques in a "live" club setting.
