Review of MilesSong from The Midwest Record 03/05/18

A review of my latest CD “MilesSong”:

“…The trumpeter with chops to spare finds every sweet spot that can be mined on this double album, volume two to what might well turn into a series seeing how much music Miles Davis left to be explored and re-evaluated. Utterly tasty stuff throughout, this 14 song sideways glance at his entire career gives you all you need to feel what Morreale feels and dig deeper. Hot stuff that’s a helluva gateway drug.”

Michael Morreale: Love and Influence (2013-16 [2017], Blujazz, 2CD): Trumpet player, also some flugelhorn and piano, based in New York. I don’t know of any previous albums, but hype sheet says he’s been active thirty-some years, and I’ve seen a number of side credits, especially with Joe Jackson. Mainstream, with Jon Gordon on alto sax, lots of piano. First disc is brighter and sharper; second includes a vocal. B+(*) [cd]
