Album Review

Drummer Danny D'Imperio and his septet (which includes trumpeter Greg Gisbert, altoist Andy Fusco, tenor saxophonist Ralph Lalama, pianist Hod O'Brien, guitarist Steve Brown, and bassist Dave Shapiro) bring back to life obscure songs by Blue Mitchell ("Hip to It"), Hank Mobley, Bob Dorough, Joe Zawinul ("Frog Legs"), and others. The musicians really know the hard bop style well and, without just re-creating the past, they are very creative and swinging within the style's boundaries. Whether it be "Un Poco Loco" or "Dizzy's Business," these renditions hold their own against the earlier and more famous versions. Recommended.


Born: 1945 in Sydney, NY

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s

A fine drummer, Danny D'Imperio is best-known for his leadership and recordings with the Metropolitan Bopera House and his own groups. He picked up early experience playing with the Glenn Miller ghost band (1970-1972) and two years apiece with the orchestras of Maynard Ferguson and Woody Herman. He subbed for Buddy Rich when Rich was ill in 1983, was the house drummer at Condon's, and has freelanced quite a bit, but it is his V.S.O.P. recordings...
