Wagner, Rob Trio S/T [Valid]
Wagner has been playing with the New Orleans Klezmer All-Stars for many years but this is NOT KLEZ at all. He is also in the circle of Galactic/Groove Jazz scene but this is NOT GROOVE JAZZ It is not even very much like a lot of other modern New Orleans jazz. The first cut features Rob playing Tenor and Sop. Sax at the same time but not in an ‘outside? way. Now that I have said what it is not, I still like it (and I don’t like many sax-heavy recordings) because it is solid, tasty, enjoyable jazz with great bass and drumming.
Year 2001 recording. – Dave Richoux
