Giovanni Tommaso Quintet: To Chet
Italia. Tommaso populates his band with his fellow countrymen, achieving label owner Sergio Veschi goal of exposing and promoting mainstream jazz from Italy. To Chet is a solid offering from journeymen musicians proving that the States are no longer the sole source of exceptional jazz music. This disc is a little on the rough edge of Post Bop and Avant-gard, but there are still many moments to enjoy.
