Jimmy Haslip – Scott Kinsey-Gergo Borlai ~ Arc Trio

Arc Trio


This 10 track albums brings 3 of the finest jazz musicians together for some fine music. “Owasso”, which starts you off, is a rhythmic feeling song, starting off with drums, then bringing in the bass, then, finally the keyboard. “West Orange” was a bit more focused and also features some nice sax by Steve Tavaglione. The third song “Conchita”, when I first listened to this song, I did not like. Upon a second time, hearing it, I find myself liking it quite a bit more. “Viera” is a fine improv song that just goes in all different directions, except the horns, which keep you grounded. “Joan Miro” seems out of tune at times, mostly due to the keyboards. This could be fixed with a different keyboard sound setting. Vinnie Colaiuta fills in on drums on “Sprite”, which is probably my favorite song on the album. “Palo Alto” features Gary Novak on drums for what to me, even though it is jazz, seems more like new age…I like it. “I’m Hip” seems to go way out in the improv style, but, is still focused. “Goan Wanderer” goes back to the New Age sound, but, not as good as “Palo Alto”. I rate this 3.5 out of 5 Music Guru Stars.
