Lou Grassi Quartet – Avanti Galoppi

Good modern swing from a few CIMP regulars. There’s a feel-good laid back vibe here, even as the solos get out. Brown’s fluid playing contrasts nicely with Robertson’s dirty growls on the trumpet and everybody seems like they’re having a damn fine time. Definitely recommended.

1. Slow improv build to busy
2. Laid back shuffle with a folky Italian sounding head
3. Bouncy jumble
4. Happy med tempo swing
5. Quiet mellow improv, solo section gets busier
*6. Bass solo to start, a strange jarring head. Quiet tpt & sax builds
7. Spare improv to begin, builds to big drum solo finish
