Album Review

Reviewed 2005-09-10 
Playful and irreverent jazz from Italy. Trumpet-drum-bass lineup, as promised in the title. Fun stuff.

Songs are snippets, a nice patchwork of cute jazz compositions, crisp loud drumming, and the occasional sound sample thrown in. Nicely creative stuff that comes across accessible and hip even though it draws heavily from European chamber jazz.

1- Drums for 36 seconds
2- Several phases including noisy faux dance-electronica
3- Chamber-like, mid/fast.
4- Drum blip
5- Popping chamber feel, mid/fast
6- Slow, serene chamber music
7- Midtempo hipness. Fuzzy fake guitar; hip trumpet riffs. Repetitious.
8- Slow wanderings. Perks up later
9- Calm trumpet, high-energy drums
10- Mid/fast, snappy
11- Cuban take, sort of. Slowish, compelling
12- Gaaa! Fast but short.
13- Ominous, mid/slow. Gets chaotic.
14- Rolling African/jazz feel
15- Slow jamming, brash trumpet
16- Stumbling drums
17- Fast straight bop w/walking bass and everything!
