Criss Cross Jazz 1246 CD

Joe Magnarelli - John Swana

New York-Philly Junction

Available: February 15, 2004

Unsung trumpet heroes Joe Magnarelli and John Swana, each a Criss Cross veteran, battled to a draw on the stirring 1998 opus PHILLY-NEW YORK JUNCTION, an album so good that Gerry Teekens couldn't resist bringing them back for a 2003 rematch.
Supported by the same formidable cast of characters (Eric Alexander, tenor sax; Joel Weiskopf, piano; Peter Washington, bass, and Kenny Washington, drums), Magnarelli (right channel) and Swana (left channel) exchange ideas with brotherly competitiveness and deep swing -- there isn't a dull moment.
