Franco Ambrosetti: Movies, Too

Album Notes

Personnel: Franco Ambrosetti (trumpet, flugelhorn), Greg Osby (alto saxophone), Geri Allen (piano), John Scofield (guitar), Michael Formanek (bass), Daniel Humair (drums).

Recorded on March 22-23, 1988.

This second CD of movie themes once again finds flugelhornist Franco Ambrosetti transforming some unpromising themes into jazz (including "Theme from Superman," "Theme from Peter Gunn" and "What's New, Pussycat"), in addition to better-known standards such as "My Man," "Angel Eyes" and "God Bless the Child." The inventive arrangements feature excellent solos from Ambrosetti, altoist Greg Osby (doubling on soprano), guitarist John Scofield and pianist Geri Allen, with fine support from bassist Michael Formanek and drummer Daniel Humair. Well worth checking out. ~ Scott Yanow
