Sweet jazz saxophone magic Francesco Amenta – Midtown Walk

Sweet jazz saxophone magic Francesco Amenta – MIDTOWN WALK:  I just love original jazz, and seven of the eight tunes on this sweet jazz saxophone album were penned by saxophonist, pianist & composer Francesco… you can get an up-close-and-personal look at his high-energy playing right here…

There are several other soulful videos, too, when you SUBSCRIBE to Francesco’s YouTube channel (as I did, right away).

Francesco’s tenor sax is joined by Cyrus Chestnut on piano, Kimon Karoutzos doing bass and Gary Kerkezou playing drums, and you’ll (instantly) hear their love for playing together as you listen to Francesco’s original “Home“… a great piano intro from Cyrus leads a lively jam that (I predict) jazz DJ’s are going to love!

The intimate conversation you’ll hear between all four players on “Number 9“, which was inspired by McCoy Tyner’s playing… this tune just JUMPS, people; it had me up on my feet, dancin’ ’round my listening studio with my headphones on, lol.

Franceso wrote the opening track, “Dancing“, for his wife (who is a dancer)… the recording is flawless, and the playing robust… this song won my vote for personal favorite of the eight great tunes offered up for this joyful jazz journey!

I give Francesco and his musical partners a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98.  Get more information on Francesco’s website.                                           Rotcod Zzaj
