Solidarity (Unseen Rain Records) by Matt Lavelle’s 12 Houses is a rampaging rollicking jazz affair with Lavelle’s cornet, flugelhorn and alto clarinet leading the charge on six original jam-packed elongated tracks. The action is fast and furious what with two soprano saxophones, two clarinets, alto sax, tenor sax, two flutes, bells, baritone sax, bass clarinet, piccolo, bassoon, piano, violin, cello, guitar, banjo, mandola, vibraphone, percussion, double-bass, drums and human voice. – rant ‘n’ roll by Mike Greenblatt, The Aquarian Weekly
DOM MINASI and JACK DeSALVO, two jazz guitarists at the top of their game, have been longtime fans of each other – but have never played together.
On an afternoon in November of 2015, the two players sat down in the intimate open space at Beanstudio and recorded SOLDANO DIECI ANNI using several of their favorite acoustic and electric instruments. The resulting recording, intimate yet open and colorful, is a must-have for anyone interested in modern jazz guitar.
