Reviews of This Recording

To my ears, Fred Vigorito's work is ….uniquely propulsive, highly emotional and tonally so different his work is a great joy. Big Bill Bissonnette is no slouch on the trombone and a great, driving asset to the ensembles. He's also a great and creative supporter of other players - hear him behind Vigorito on C’est Magnifique for example -that's a talent very few jazzmen can boast.
