Alberto Pinton: Common Intent Dynamics and well-placed subtleties abound on this outing led by sharpshooter baritone saxophonist/clarinetist Alberto Pinton. This quartet charts a path brimming with sublime portraitures, bubbly unison choruses, and swarming yet flexible rhythms, although the band conjures up ominous notions on "Improvisation IV/IV." Pinton and trumpeter Kyle Gregory frequently engage in soaring choruses atop the thoroughly musical drummer Roberto Dani's counterbalancing statements and bassist Salvatore Maiore's fluid lines.

The musicians beckon the listener to partake in a meticulously crafted journey consisting of vast terrains and poignant movements while they also engage in free jazz style expositions amid some bump and grind type soloing. On "Where We Live," Pinton picks up the alto flute for a work that is all about soul searching dreamscapes while the band accelerates the proceedings on the fiery, hard bop number titled "C-Melody." Throughout, it's quite evident that Pinton possesses monstrous chops as a baritone saxophonist - whether rendering cordial themes or engaging in sweeping swing grooves. A fine effort it is! Recommended!
