Album Review

During his long career, André Ceccarelli has recorded sporadically as a leader, but this studio affair should open a few doors. Accompanied by the talented Gypsy guitarist Bireli Lagrene and organist Joey DeFrancesco, the drummer puts together a wide-ranging set, delving into standards, swing, bop, jazz fusion, and more.

The leader finally cuts loose with the brief "Prelude," which segues into a romp through "April in Paris," while Jaco Pastorius' "Three Views of a Secret" showcases both Lagrene's lyrical side and his virtuosity. The one disappointment of the date is the rather lame Norah Jones composition "Sunrise," which pales in comparison to the other tracks on this enjoyable CD.
