Album Review

This is a particularly strong straightahead jazz set. The hard-swinging guitarist Jimmy Bruno and his trio (bassist Craig Thomas and drummer Victor Ector) first perform a couple of the leader's basic originals and a pair of standards (including Clifford Brown's "Joy Spring"). After Bruno plays an inventive version of "I Can't Give You Anything but Love" unaccompanied, he welcomes tenor-saxophonist Scott Hamilton as the group's guest for the final five numbers. "Lover Man" is taken as a tenor-guitar duet and of the other four standards, "Broadway" and "I Want to Be Happy" are quite heated. Bruno and Hamilton clearly inspire each other, making this a set that fans of both talented players will want.

One of the finest jazz guitarists in Philadelphia, Jimmy Bruno is a passionate hard bopper who loves to swing aggressively but can be a very sensitive ballad player when he puts his mind to it. The Italian-American was raised in South Philly, where he fell in love with jazz as a kid and took up the guitar at the age of seven. Growing up, he was influenced by such bop guitar greats as Joe Pass, Kenny Burrell, Barney Kessel and Jimmy Raney but also admired the pre-bop work of Eddie Lang, Charlie Christian...
