Criss Cross Jazz 1251 CD

Jim Rotondi

New Vistas

Available: May 10, 2004

Jim Rotondi's fifth Criss Cross album frames the trumpeter's golden tone in a new context - to be specific, long-time Criss Cross guitar-organ team Peter Bernstein and Sam Yahel, omniscient drummer Bill Stewart, and protean a new sound tenor saxman Chris Potter.
The program alternates white-hot and mellow feels in equal measure; everything is sustained by the inner flame of swing.
