The Italian sound of the 60s lives again – in this fresh set of work from pianist Luca Mannutza, and his ultra-hip Sound Six combo! The sextet has a wonderful way of reaching back into the past, grabbing up the best elements of Italian jazz, and moving it forward strongly into the 21st Century – almost a summation of the excellent work heard on other titles on the Albore label, served up to perfection here by a lineup that also includes Andy Gravish on trumpet, Max Ionata on tenor, Paolo Recchia on alto, Renato Gattone on bass, and Andrea Nunzi on drums! There's a fluid feel, solid soul, and modern swing that takes us right back to the classic days of Blue Note – no surprise, given that the set includes versions of Wayne Shorter's "On The Ginza" and "The Big Push", Kenny Dorham's "Short Story", and Duke Pearson's "You Know I Care" – plus great takes on Chick Corea's "Litha" and Mulgrew Miller's "Grew's Tune".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Peregrinations
Blue Note (Japan), 1975. New Copy
One more amazing chapter in the mighty development of drummer Chico Hamilton – a killer 70s session for Blue Note – and a record that goes way beyond his earlier experiments of the 50s, modal grooves of the 60s, and funk work for the Flying Dutchman label! The style here is fusion, but ... CD
