Fabio Morgera: Slick

Trumpeter Fabio Morgera has put together an inventive and tasteful recording of original tunes and classics that showcases the talents of his new ensemble, made up of young lions from New York who all swing on the same wavelength. Morgera’s improvisational chops are stellar on his opener, “NY Pace,” and stay strong whether he’s doing a funky “Old Devil Moon” or a mellow “Flores,” which features some memorable interplay with trombonist Jason Jackson. Other members of the group are J.D. Allen on tenor (who solos with authority on “NY Pace”), Peter Griesinger on guitar (who cooks on “Devil Moon”), Bill Ware on vibes, Eric Revic on bass and drummer Alvester Garnett.
