Do Tell – “Hotend” – [Amirani Records/Amirani Contemporary]

Cousin Mary   12/1/2016   CD, Jazz

Do Tell is a cornet/tuba/percussion trio from New Mexico. This group of 6 Julius Hemphill compositions sounds rather good with this odd combination of instruments. The tunes are upbeat, happy, and bouncy with some nods to Hemphill’s avant-garde side. Who knew tuba in the right hands could be so graceful and compatible with a cornet?
