Frank Wess/Frank Vignola
Without a Doubt
E1 Music

The material on Without a Doubt is broad in scope as it finds versatile bassist Mark Egan tastefully holding down the bottom end. Wess blows some exceptionally nice figures on his two originals: "Sumpin' Went Wrong," a lightly swinging number, and "Pretty Is," an easy-going blues. Pace and mood changes are provided by Ascione's brisk "City Samba" and "Depraw," an airy, atmospheric ballad by Egan. Vignola alternates between acoustic and electric instruments, exhibiting his unique stylistic combination of melodic subtlety, spirited bluesiness and keenly honed technique.
