Jazz 101

Language, language, language. Each musician on this record is a monster in his own right and a master of the jazz idiom. Bring them together and you've got that "All For One" sound and some of the best straight-ahead playing in the world. It was a great show and is now a great record.

Take-no-prisoners Hard Bop

This quintet side, led by trumpeter Jim Rotondi, draws from repertoire and personnel that have long been associated with the Uptown-Manhattan-based group known as One For All, of which Rotondi is one of the founding members. Rotondi and saxophonist Eric Alexander are shining examples of contemporary hard bop mastery, and are backed by pianist David Hazeltine, bassist John Webber, and drummer Joe Farnsworth, who are considered to be among the foremost rhythm section players in straight ahead jazz. This album finds the quintet exploring originals, jazz standards, and a single composition by piano legend Paul Nero called "Sunday in New York." If you're looking for a big helping of top-tier improvisational artistry set against the backdrop of Messengers-style swing, look no further.
