Vince Seneri: The Prince’s Groove

Hammond-B3 burner Vince “The Prince” Seneri turns out good-rockin’ hallelujah soul and cool Latin accents with swaggering flair. But his greatest gift might be in attracting the right players to support these dynamite grooves and smooth strolls. While Seneri’s bluesy touch is all over the opening “Renegade Man,” it’s Randy Brecker’s cool-toned trumpet that ramps up the hip quotient. Guitarist Paul Bollenback and flutist Dave Valentin get into good-natured competition to claim the wickedest groove, but in the end its Seneri himself packing the most heat.
