Criss Cross Jazz 1231 CD

Mike DiRubbo

Human Spirit

Available: February 5, 2003

Rightfully acknowledged as an accomplished musician who has translated John Coltrane's harmonics and spiritual intensity to the alto saxophone, Mike DiRubbo brings us the hard bop-inflected Human Spirit, his sophomore effort for Criss Cross.
Featuring Jim Rotondi on trumpet, David Hazeltine on piano, with bassist Peter Washington, and drummer Joe Farnsworth, the set includes originals by DiRubbo and Rotondi along with classics by Hank Mobley, Jackie McLean, and Henri Mancini.
