Dave Zinno offers “string of well thought out jazz recordings” on latest release

 

DAVE ZINNO [bass] and his group, Unisphere [Mike Tucker-ts, Eric Benny Bloom-tpt/flg, Tim Ray-p, Rafael Barata-drm], have issued their second recording. In Zinno’s notes, he references Rio as his home base and discusses the fusion of North American and Brazilian music. As a result, one might expect a recording of soft and pretty cliched music. Not so, led by Mike Tucker’s consistently strong tenor work, this is closer to a hard bop exploration. Recorded 11/28 & 29/18, STORIES TOLD is the latest from Whaling City [#113] in a string of well thought out jazz recordings and offerings overall better than the tired old music issued by the names on major labels today. A mixture of 9 originals and covers [66:18], a good choice for those looking for adventure and not just familiarity.

Dori Rubicco proves to be solid jazz performer on latest release

“Dori Rubicco might suggest a cabaret date but this is a solid jazz date to the point that it opens with an instrumental from the quintet [Bill Miele-b, John Harrison III-p, Yoron Israel-drm, Donn Legge-gtr, Bryan Steele-ts/ss, Ian Rubbicco Leggecello]. Following the instrumental are 10 standards plus one original by the singer. Rubbicco does a very nice job on “Imagine” ,“Throw It Away”and “Twisted” in particular. Rubbicco has a strong voice and a healthy touch of Melissa Manchester. I believe this is her first release and please let there be more.”

Whaling City Sound Reviews in Cadence July Issue

A quick note about TERRY GIBBS’, 92 YEARS YOUNG: JAMMIN’AT THE GIBBS HOUSE [Whaling City Sound wsc 092]. Gibbs was brought out of retirement to make this recording [4/16] in his living room with a quartet [Gerry Gibbs-drm, John Campbell-p, Mike Gurrola-drm] playing 15 mostly originals [77:53]. Gibbs has slowed down from the frenetic pace with which he often played. The result is more gravitas and a lovely warm and laid back session on which all excel. Special mention of Campbell’s work and its many surprises. Very hip.

Also from Whaling Sound comes WOOD AND STRINGS [WCS 093], a relaxed duet with JOHN STEIN [gtr] and  DAVE ZINNO [b]. As with the Gibbs album, comes a full program of music [14 tracks standards & originals-71:37], a relaxed ambience, nicely packaged with meaningful liners. Professional and  un-perfunctory.
