Fiery tune from Mike's new album. His inquisitive nature on guitar has developed into a signature sound, something that not every musician can lay claim to. Solid front line to fill out the quartet. Well worth your time to check out this song and the various other songs that Mike offers on AAJ. Jazz from NYC.
'Momentum' is from the new album Source Material on Fresh Sound New Talent records from the Mike Baggetta Quartet. Featuring guitarist Mike Baggetta's original music with Jason Rigby on Saxophones, Eivind Opsvik on Bass and George Schuller on Drums.

I love jazz because it mixes intellect and emotion in a very spontaneous way.
I was first exposed to jazz by liberating a Coltrane and a Pharoah Sanders record from a friend in NYC and listening to them over and over until I got it.
My advice to new listeners is you have to take the time to listen to some jazz tunes a number of times until it starts to make sense.
