Review: Magnarelli’s latest disc exhibits hard bop craft and artistic license in equal measure. It is not merely a vehicle for the trumpeter’s full, burnished tone and patient, thoughtful way of developing a solo. This superb disc also reveal Magnarelli as a composer of genuine merit, an arranger who fashions the music in terms other than a predictable format, and a leader concerned with presenting the talents of his peers.
