Criss Cross Jazz 1255 CD

Ralph Peterson

The Fo'tet Augmented

Available: September 17, 2004

For his fourth disc for Criss Cross drummer/leader Ralph Peterson has reconstituted The Fo'tet, his critically acclaimed forward-looking quartet featuring vibraphonist Bryan Carrott.

Founding member clarinetist Don Byron returns after a nearly 15 years hiatus to revisit the group's truly unique, original sound.

Percussionist Eguie Castillo augments the band to help it fuse Latin rhythms into the mix, including a Puerto Rican plena arrangement of Joe Henderson's Shade of Jade and a Brazilian samba flavored reworking of the leader's Keep it Simple.
The bassist is Belden Bullock.
