Negroni's Trio: Piano/Drums/Bass

Forging ahead with his exciting contemporary jazz celebration, pianist José Negroni sparkles with unrestrained passion. His forceful keyboard work brings each interpretation into view head-on, with no holds barred. The trio's "take no prisoners" physicality gives its audience a highly rhythmic affair with unbridled powers of persuasion. Negroni, with his son Nomar at the drums and Jaime Rivera on electric bass, delivers a dramatic lesson in piano power. His physical attacks on the keyboard result in a highly percussive and forceful performance.

Wayne Shorter's "Footprints" charges ahead at full speed, with no room left for thinking things over. George Gershwin's memorable "Summertime" follows a similar path, scooting rapidly over an established theme and leaving little to the imagination. Negroni doesn't like to slow down. He prefers to blaze a percussive trail and dares his audience to keep up.

"Red Light" doesn't mean stop. It signals the trio's drummer for an extended solo. Piano and bass eventually join him in a fiery exposition on a classical theme. Similarly, "On Time" and "Rev It Up" indicate the kind of solid desire that pushes hard. Piano, drums, and bass build fires and keep them burning brightly.
