Bird Is the Worm – Hieronymus

A very cool personality all throughout this session.  This quintet of Pippi Dimonte (double bass), Marco Vecchio (alto & soprano sax), Simone Salvini (trumpet), Alessandro De Lorenzi (guitar) and Nicola Benetti (drums) switches between expressions of classic bop, modern post-bop, Latin, and jazz-funk, and despite flitting around the various jazz sub-genres, it ends up creating a cohesive album that shines pretty brightly no matter what the influence of the moment is.  While the modern post-bop tunes are arguably the most compelling, it’s those that dive into thick grooves that will elicit the most smiles.  A fun album, and perhaps this week’s wild card.
