Fabrizio Bosso: Fast Flight Jazz Italian Style. Fabrizio Bosso turns in as exciting a Be Bop recital as an enthusiast could hope for. If anything, the title cut will remind the listener of "Dizzy's Atmosphere", only faster. Bosso's quintet is tight and precise, surveying standards that include Freddie Hubbard's brawny "Gibraltar" and Richard Rodger's tender "Too Young to Go Steady". Notable on the original composition side is Bosso's cool "Woman's Glance" and bass-player Bassi's tart "My Life Express". Bosso and reeds-player Giuliani have an almost Gerry Mulligan-Chet Baker empathy. Their jazz counterpoint is crisp and clear. The sonics are exceptional, as we have come to expect from the Milano bunch. The entire package is impressive. Recommended.

Track Listing: Fast Flight; Woman's Glance; My Life Express; Gibraltar; Actor And Actress; Minor Mood; Too Young To Go Steady; Brother's Song; In Walked Bud; Family Blues; Fast Flight, Take 2. (Total Time: 63.34)

Personnel: Fabrizio Bosso: Trumpet, Flugelhorn; Rosario Giuliani: Alto And Soprano Saxophones; Salvatore Bonafede: Piano; Giuseppe Bassi: Bass; Marcello Di Leonardo: Drums.
