Criss Cross Jazz 1236 CD

Alex Sipiagin


Available: May 8, 2003

This is Russian trumpet star Alex Sipiagin's third outing on Criss Cross.

This time, as before, in the company of a group of New York jazz greats: tenorist Seamus Blake and guitarist Adam Rogers plus a rhythm section consisting of piano star David Kikoski, with bassist Boris Kozlov, and drummer Jonathan Blake.

Listen to the beautiful rendition of "Travel", a piece composed and arranged by Alex Sipiagin and dedicated to bassist Dave Holland.

The CD offers five Sipiagin originals and one Charles Mingus composition "Tijuana Gift Shop".
