Negroni's Trio: Piano/Drums/Bass (2004)
Wayne Shorter's "Footprints" charges ahead at full speed, with no room left for thinking things over. George Gershwin's memorable "Summertime" follows a similar path, scooting rapidly over an established theme and leaving little to the imagination. Negroni doesn't like to slow down. He prefers to blaze a percussive trail and dares his audience to keep up.
"Red Light" doesn't mean stop. It signals the trio's drummer for an extended solo. Piano and bass eventually join him in a fiery exposition on a classical theme. Similarly, "On Time" and "Rev It Up" indicate the kind of solid desire that pushes hard. Piano, drums, and bass build fires and keep them burning brightly.
