Steve Langone Trio: Breathe “A Clever Mix of Soul, Spirituals and Swing”

By: George W. Harris

Drummer Steve Langone teams with Kevin Harris/p and Dave Zinno/b for a clever mix of soul, spirituals and swing on this release. Zinno’s bass is elegiac on the traditional “Shenandoah” while Sunday comes rolling around on the gospel tinged “Fifteen” and “Down By The Riverside” while “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child” oozes with soulful pathos.  The leader’s cymbals guide the horses through a rich read of Chick Corea’s “Humpty Dumpty” and whips the wagon train up on the assertive “Song For Now.” Lots of various sides of Americana are served up well here.
