Jose Negroni, a brilliant pianist and composer of remarkable creativity, is one of Jazz's prominent musicians. The Negroni's Trio was his own vision and the fulfillment of a longtime dream. The Trio, composed of drummer Nomar Negroni, José's son, who is gifted and powerful in his own right, and bassist Jaime Rivera, an accomplished player of both electric and acoustic bass, make up a true combination, fusing straight ahead jazz, classical lyricism and Latin Caribbean beats. His first album, Naturaleza" (Nature) (2003) on Universal Music Latino, blends elements of progressive jazz, pop and Latin music and pays tribute to the spirit of his native island, Puerto Rico. Since its release, Naturaleza" has achieved chart position on jazz and even on new age radio throughout the United States. His follow up album, Piano/Drums/Bass" (2004) brings a fresh, edgier sound to the table by combining a fusion of classical, Afro-Cuban, groovin' bass lines, piano vamps and blazing percussion solos. This recording features eight original compositions with two classic standards (George Gershwin's, Summertime" & Wayne Shorter's, Footprints"). Released in the US in August 2004 and now in 2005 released in Japan, Spain & Argentina, Negroni’s Trio has received remarkable international acclaim. Negroni’s Trio audiences have been captivated by the classical lyricism, brilliant piano improvisations and downright groove on both standard and original material. They currently hold an extensive calendar of monthly events that repeatedly electrify a wide array of new audiences and garner a large following.
A simple and unassuming little CD in a cardboard package, but it packs a wallop of fiery Latin jazz licks. As one of the tunes is titled, they really do Rev It Up. Without a big percussion section this little trio burns thru ten tracks - mostly originals but two surprises: One is a chance to hear a really alternative version of Wayne Shorter's Footprints that's a kick, and the other to dig a Latin version of a tune you probably never thought of that way - Gershwin's Summertime. Good sonics assists the impact of the tasty tracks; this is the best piano trio disc I've heard in some time. - John Henry Audiophile Audition Magazine
