Opening Statement (Origin Records) by Tito Carrillo

Editor's Comments

Hopping tune, full of energy. This is Carrillo's first album under his own name and he doesn't hold back. One of those albums that I lose track of where I'm at in the cd, and each subsequent track has me sitting up and smiling that the album isn't yet over. This is jazz in the hands of a professional.

About the track

A confluence of the post-bop trumpet legacy of Miles, Hubbard, & Shaw, along with the complexities of Cuban rhythms, lyrical ballad phrasing, and boundary-breaking free exploration, Opening Statement is a powerful recording by one of the more prominent fixtures on the vibrant Chicago jazz scene of the past 15 years. Though having appeared on over 20 CDs alongside luminaries such as Willie Pickens, Chuchito Valdes, and even pop icon Phil Collins, this project marks trumpeter Carrillo's first recording as a leader, revealing a singular modern trumpeter with an expressive and original compositional voice.
