Dynamically diverse saxophone jazz Dan Moretti – TRES LIBRE: It’s hard to believe that I haven’t reviewed Dan’s dynamically diverse saxophone jazz in such a long while (his “Live At Chan’s” was my most recent review)… to get an intimate look at his sweet playing style on that album with The Hammond Boys, watch this clip first…
You’ll find MANY more upbeat performances from Dan when you SUBSCRIBE to the JAZZBLUESWAVE channel on YouTube… do it now, I did.
Dan’s all-original music is a total treat for jazz lovers of all types… just check out “Mumbo Jumbo” – a kind of reggae feel, but with soaring tenor solos from Dan… this 4:42 gem will be plugged in by jazz DJ’s all ’round the world, I’ve no doubt!
If it’s introspection (of sorts) you’re looking for, you’ll find “The Inner Side” very enjoyable… the pairing of fantastic fretless bass with Dan’s exciting exploratory solos will make this a favorite for many.
I have never heard a more harmonic 3-sax solo than Dan performs on the uniquely spiritual closer, “The Missing Breath“…. an amazing performance that will help you rise above the fray!
Dan plays alto on the high-energy “Escrito Jazz Libre” (written free jazz)… I knew as soon as I listened to this piece that it was my choice for personal favorite of the seven sophisticated songs Dan offers up for our jazz joy… absolutely SPLENDID percussion compliments Dan’s reed work wonderfully.
I give Dan and all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99. Get more information on Dan’s HearNow page for the album. Rotcod Zzaj
