Billet-Deux - Deux
I agree with previous reviews of this cd. It is one of the best jazz releases of 2008. Even though I'm listening in 2009. It's a distinctly guitar-drive jazz album, almost classical in orientation.
4 on 6
Goodbye Porkpie Hat
Do You Know What It Means (to Miss New Orleans)
Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise
Tu Vuo Fa L’Americano
Those are the stars, along with
Troy Chapman - guitar
James Hinkley - cello
Keith Bowers - guitar
Michael Yocco - bass
Roget Bennett - drums
Each contains "the sophistication and coolness of modern jazz" and they are right to call themselves such.
