On this album, The Super Trio of Massimo Farao’, Ron Carter and Jimmy Cobb deliver a very special and strong set including “Autumn Leaves”, “Our Love Is Here To Stay”, “Oh What A Beautiful Morning” and “Once Upon A Time In America”.
There’s a great sense of warmth to this album from The Super Trio – one that really seems to come from the bass work of Ron Carter, which is so upfront and present in the recording, it’s got us remembering all over again why we love his music so much! Massimo Farao is on piano, and balances out Ron’s sound with a lighter, more lyrical touch – but one that swings nicely, too – thanks to the always-great drum contributions of Jimmy Cobb – still a master of the understated swing, even after decades of recording! Titles include the original “Marta”, plus “Salina”, “Autumn Leaves”, “Softly As In A Morning Sunrise”, “On A Clear day”, and Ennio Morricone’s “Once Upon A Time In America” – which sounds surprisingly nice as a jazz tune.
