Criss Cross Jazz 1180 CD

Ryan Kisor Quartet

Point Of Arrival

Young virtuoso trumpeter Ryan Kisor sounds like an old soul on his second Criss Cross date, a fiery, thoughtful exploration of a choice selection of standards and originals with a top-notch New York rhythm section, consisting of pianist Peter Zak, bassist John Webber and drummer Wille Jones III.

Winner of the Louis Armstrong International Trumpet Competition at 17, he recorded 2 dates for Columbia by the age of 20, when he was already a regular in the Mingus Orchestra's trumpet section. Since 1994 he's worked steadily with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra.
