Negroni's Trio

Negroni's Trio, a local father-son collaboration, delivers a sharp, closely-knit sound that liberally draws from the rich roots of Latin music while keeping an open ear to other jazz influences. The aesthetic is on full display on their recently released CD, Piano/Bass/Drums (Universal Music Latino). On the original "Mavi," they explore the rhythm of pianist José Negroni's native Puerto Rico. The song's sparse arrangement lends space for drummer Nomar Negroni to showcase his chops. On the other hand, the classic Gershwin tune "Summertime" is given a more East Coast bebop groove that showcases bassist Jaime Rivera, while Wayne Shorter's "Footprint" has a subtle samba-inspired drum feel to it.
