Carlos "Zingaro" - Joelle Leandre - Sebi Tramontana: The Chicken Check In Complex Bassist Joelle Leandre and trombonist Sebi Tramontana extend concepts witnessed on their duet CD for “Leo Records,” E’Vero. Hence, a very colorful engagement, despite the intimations of what could have been a brooding effort – due to the inherent tonalities of the twosome’s respective instruments. Here violinist Carlos “Zingaro” provides some additional pleasure and inventiveness!

The artists’ fluttering notions and weaving patterns are framed within spontaneous call and response type exchanges. Zingaro investigates just about every angle whereas the same could be said for Ms. Leandre, as the trio crisscrosses and coalesces. However, the musicians’ synergistic approach remains unfettered. At times, the trio’s momentum is founded upon garrulous mini-motifs and the regeneration of themes. Tramontana often serves as the common bond. While his associates interrogate the perimeters of sound and reason with impressionistic excursions and cat n’ mouse style improvisation. No doubt, this jubilant exposition should gain the undivided attention of quite a few modern/free-jazz enthusiasts. Recommended...
