We'll be honest in saying that we'd never heard the music of trumpeter Diego Frabetti
before this album, and only picked it up because it features Fender Rhodes from Danny Grissett – but after the first few notes, we were in love right away – and really love the sound of both Frabetti
and his group on the session! Grissett is a key part of the set, and also plays some great acoustic piano as well – and the combo also features Barend Middelhof on tenor, Davide Brillante on guitar, Stefano Senni on bass, and Nicola Angelucci on drums – again, all players who are new to us, and who work together beautifully here with a strong sense of cohesion that really comes through in the colors of the sound! Frabetti
's got a voice that's right on the money, and never overdone – and the balance of trumpet, tenor, guitar, and keyboards is wonderful throughout – on titles that include "Maestro Up Tempo", "Melamia", "Stessi Occhi", "Ciclico", "Piogge", and "Interno 41".
