The Johnny Varro Quartet: All That Jazz With Jon-Erik Kellso

Artists / Instruments:
Johnny Varro, piano; Jon-Erik Kellso, Puje; Nicki Parrott, bass; Joe Ascione, drums.

"Varro resuscitates the jam combo tradition of the ´30s and ´40s and here fronts what could have been, in 1945, a major attraction on the 52nd Street jam scene. All of the ingredients are present. One of a small handful of contemporary trumpeters who posesses a close affinity to the giants of the pre-bop era, Jon-Erik Kellso was the perfect choice for this session. With a style chiseled from the Louis Armstrong of the 1920´s and ´30s, Kellso sought even further to find other related sources of inspiration. On the performances heard here, with his readily identifiable, burry tone and characteristic mastery of lyrical, thematically based improvisations, Kellso effortlessly, and perhaps even unconsciously, incorporates fleeting allusions to many of his predecessors." - Jack Sohmer, record and book reviewer for such publications as The Mississippi Rag, Down Beat, JazzTimes and Cadence
