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.

I love jazz because it gives me freedom of expression.
I was first exposed to jazz from the minute I was aware of my surroundings.
I met Harry Connick, Jr.
The best show I ever attended was Tony Bennett.
The first jazz record I bought was Dave Brubeck Quartet - Time Out.
My advice to new listeners: never stop expanding your horizons.
