Rosario Giuliani: Mr. Dodo

Some of the best non-Charlie Parker Influenced Alto blowing...

The musicianship of Rosario Giuliani is exhilarating. His total package of performance, composition, and improvisation is not so much a breath of fresh air as it is a gale force wind blowing across a landscape littered with Charlie Parker/John Coltrane disciples. He has a confident, masculine tone that is at once assertive and tender, betraying bits of Julian Adderley and Eric Dolphy. The upbeat numbers, such as "Mr. Dodo," "September," and "Mimi" burn with a relaxed but determined urgency to express ideas. The ballads "Home" and "Francy’s Song" are thoughtful and lovely, delicate like a flower, durable like a kiss. As a follow-up to the very well received Luggage, Mr. Dodo recommends itself nicely.
