Claudio Roditi: Three for One (341) (2003)
The trio glides together through Ignatzek's romantic tunes, like the haunting "Springdale" and "Sussex Garden," and the more angular, bop melodies by Roditi, like "Either Way" and "Christmas in Rio." The disc ends with the happy Caribbean-flavored "Avocado," with sprightly solos on bass and trumpet. With this trio's impeccable time, and Rassinfosse's strong walking lines, you won't miss the drums. Relaxing and thoughtful and full of genial energy, Roditi's latest is a refreshing change of pace from the usual trio format.
