Negroni's Trio: Piano/Drums/Bass

By

Sign in to view read count
Pianist Jose Negroni contributes most of the ten compositions on this new album save for Wayne Shorter's "Footprint" [sic] and Gershwin's "Summertime." The vibe of the pianist and the trio is that of the emerging style of Michel Camilo when he started recording in the mid-'80s. Both men exhibit the same intensive and percussive Latin-based piano jazz style, and bassist Jaime Rivera covers the same ground on his fleet electric bass solos as Anthony Jackson or Lincoln Goines two decades earlier.

Like the early Camilo recordings, the music of Negroni's Trio has a similar pace and sound throughout the album, leavened by the appearance of Miami-based veteran Ed Calle, who makes a soprano sax appearance on "Sentimental Mood" and a fragmented post-Coltrane tenor sax statement on "Rev It Up!." Percussionist Sammy Figueroa also appears on "Mavi." The frenetic mood is also heightened by frequent interplay amongst the bass and drums of Rivera and Nomar Negroni.

Recommended for fans of the genre.
