Criss Cross Jazz 1184 CD

Jim Rotondi


Surrounded by his colleages from the notorious sextet collective One For All, Jim Rotondi on Excursions etches the qualities that have won him numerous admirors in recent years as a featured soloist with Lionel Hampton, Charles Earland and - more recently - Kyle Eastwood.

Projecting one of the most beautiful sounds in jazz, he plays with staunch confidence, nuanced maturity and intuitive melodicism - and reaffirms his charter membership in the no-holds-barred society of improvisors.

The Band: tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, trombonist Steve Davis, pianist David Hazeltine with Peter Washington on bass and Kenny Washington on drums.
