Album Review

My Favourite Roots is a CD that illustrates jazz's international appeal. The musicians are Italian and American, while the label that provided A&R input and released the album, Timeless Records, is Dutch. Recorded in Rome in 1989, this post-bop session unites Italian pianist Cosmo Intini with saxophone dynamo Gary Bartz (who is heard on his main instrument, the alto sax, as well as the soprano), Italian trumpeter/flügelhornist Paolo Fresu, bassist Carroll Dashiell, and drummer Victor Lewis. In the '80s, Bartz had returned to post-bop and hard bop after many years of playing commercial pop-jazz/crossover, and it was clear that he was glad to be doing straight-ahead jazz again. The saxman is in decent form throughout the album, and he has a nice rapport with Intini on Chick Corea's "Steps" and lyrical interpretations of Thelonious Monk's "Round Midnight," the standard "My One and Only Love," and the Johnny Mathis hit "When Sunny Gets Blue." Intini's own compositions include the reflective "Fatherly Love" and the driving modal tune "Powerful Warrior." Not fantastic but certainly satisfying, My Favourite Roots is worth picking up if you come across a copy.
