Dino Govoni: In The Library Saxophonist Dino Govoni's wide-ranging jazz vernacular is conveyed rather effectively during this sprightly set. He possesses a broad tone, augmented with fluent lines and a relaxed vibe. With his quartet, the artist explores various harmonic frontiers, amid slight shifts in momentum and medium to torridly swinging tempos

The rhythm section implements a frisky Latin-jazz groove on the title piece. Here, Govoni utilizes the soprano saxophone for a series of lilting motifs, contrasted with a spacious approach. Whereas pianist Henry Hey serves as the catalyst for the group’s variances in meter.

Govoni can tear it up, yet he knows when to turn it down a few notches in a dynamic sort of way. They skirt the borders of modern jazz and bop while seemingly paying homage to the old school on several occasions. Good, solid and refreshing jazz music is what it’s all about.
