Single Layer SACD
A beautiful live performance — recorded in Italy, but by a group of musicians who record for Japan's Venus Records label — easily one of the classiest jazz imprints of the past decade or two! And as a further twist, a number of the artists here are American — which makes the whole thing a great trans-national performance, handled with energy to match!
Yet even without all of that pedigree, the music is wonderful in and of itself — long tracks that seem to bring even more of an edge to the usual Venus presentation — especially in the rhythmic department, which can sometimes be a bit more subtle on the label's studio recordings. The group features lots of heavy work on the bottom — bassists Aldo Zunino and Nicola Barbon, drummers Roberto Facchinetti and Byron Landham, and percussionist Ernesttico — and strong solos are by Jerry Weldon on tenor and Massimo Farao on piano.
There's also a few vocal moments — with singers who include Daria Toffali, Joyce Yuille, and Denise King — and titles include "Estrada Branca," "Theme From Mash," "Get Up," "September Song," "Sunny," "Triste," "O Amor Em Paz," and "Teach Me Tonight."
