Tony Do Rosario’s New Chicago Jazz Quartet: New Beginnings

Guitarist delivers tastefully swinging originals on his second release as a leader. The bouyant bossa “On This Day” pairs his warm, deliberate lines in unison with the butterscotch tones of tenor saxophonist Geof Bradfield. Do Rosario’s aggressive, staccato attack on his solos (“April 27th,” “Don’t Get Fresh With Me”) comes directly out of Pat Martino while his sense of restraint and harmonic daring (“First Hint of Autumn” and the mellow “1227302”) suggest the influence of Jim Hall.
