Reseña de álbum

This is a dream date for Russian hard bop trumpeter Valery Ponomarev that should keep fans of the hard bop style of jazz wide awake. Many listeners may simply regard Profile as part of the Joe Henderson body of water, not a bad thing at all in that this superb tenor player is Ponomarev's main foil and will constantly reward listeners' attention with neat turns of phrase, solid energy, and a tone that would still seem hearty even if surrounded by loaves of Russian bread and bowls of steaming soup. The program is an even mix of standard selections and the trumpeter's original compositions, which the band digs into with the type of appetite that might have been stimulated by the previous sentence.

He played as regularly as possible in the Soviet Union, recording for the Melodiya label and appearing at jazz festivals until defecting in 1973. Four years later, he joined Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, a perfect outlet for his style, from 1977-1980; he recorded nine...
