Skip Grasso: Becoming

Here’s a quartet comprised of two new names to me and two established veterans in the jazz biz. I was impressed with leader and guitarist Skip Grasso as well as pianist Anthony Pocetti. The familiar names on the session are Harvie S on bass and Billy Drummond on drums. The eight original tunes on the album are distinctive, airy, and often musically invigorating and rich. Pocetti could have chosen to stay away from the organ and the electric piano here and there. Aside from that, there’s a lot of musicianship and no frills versatility here.
