John Di Martino, Ugonna Okegwo and Grady Tate Together on SACD!

Multiple Grammy nominee John Di Martino — composer, arranger, pianist — has recorded many albums for Venus Records with his Romantic Jazz Trio. Noted for his versatility, John has performed and recorded with such notables as Kenny Burrell, James Moody, Joe Lovano, David "Fat Head" Newman, Pat Martino, Paquito D'Rivera and Houston Person.

"In his time on the New York scene pianist John di Martino has established a widely respected reputation as an adaptable straight-ahead player, a sensitive and sought-after accompanist of singers, and, having worked in the bands of Ray Barretto and Bobby Sanabria, among others, a brilliant Latin jazz keyboard artist. How wonderful it is that the versatile di Martino, at last, has gotten the chance to highlight his many gifts in a classic trio setting with two exemplary associates. Ugonna Okegwo is one of the most active freelance bassists working today, and with good reason. For over four decades Grady Tate has served as 'the musician's drummer,' having backed an astounding array of instrumental and vocal talent. ... John di Martino's Romantic Jazz Trio is, in fact, a recording session-generated group, but after hearing this SACD you just may think it was a permanent working unit-and you'll wish it was." — Bob Bernotas
