Danilo Perez: Providencia
And Providencia provides plenty of evidence that he has a wealth of fresh ideas about jazz in his bag. My PopMatters review is HERE.
This new recording features not only Perez's fine trio but also a woodwind quartet, breezy scat vocals, the acid tones of alto player Rudresh Mahanthappa, not to mention a wealth of fresh compositional ideas. It's a bit of a mish-mash as a program, but that is intentional. It offers something new to hear each time you put it on, and it should be a disc that sounds as good in 2020 as in 2010.
What more do you want?
