Danilo Moccia / Paul Haag Quartet: Two Bones
The set tunes on this date feature some rather well known jazz classics such as Nat Adderley's "Work Song", and Horace Silver's "Song For My Father" as well as some originals by Paul Haag and Isla Eckinger. All the performances are earnest, the rhythm section is tight, and the arrangements are crisp, and well balanced. This ensemble plays music that is very enjoyable to listen to, and draws from an overall excellent collection of material taken from the be-bop and post-bop genres. Continuing proof that our American music is alive and well abroad. Europe: We salute you!
