Jim Rotondi is a hard bop champion who carries on the tradition of trumpet heroics of Freddie Hubbard and Lee Morgan. Visiting New York from his new home base in Europe, Rotondi reunites with some of his favorites in guitarist Peter Bernstein, pianist David Hazeltine, drummer Joe Farnsworth, and bass phenom Alexander Claffy. As the Bob Belden once said, “There isn’t a better trumpet player in New York City than Jim Rotondi, for whom the word ‘versatile’ is inadequate.” And, Chris Hovan of All About Jazz adds, “Clearly, he emerges as one of the best of the post-Hubbard generation.”
