The Seven Rays
Warning: Last items in stock!
The consistently intriguing 'Seven Rays' is yet another accomplishment in Jerry Bergonzi's productive and significant career. It finds the great saxophonist revelling in jagged, tightly coiled phrases and steeped in remote harmonic progressions.
His angular riffs, unexpected silences and big, barrelling low pitches continue to underline how personal Bergonzi's approach to jazz is. Yet the charismatic nature of his delivery and the steely brilliance of his tone proves so compelling that his art speaks eloquently to both the esoteric theoreticians and the most casual of listeners.
Recorded at PBS Studios, Westwood, MA in March 2015.
