This CD focuses mainly on trumpet playing, but features many other instruments as well, such as saxaphone, trombone, and various kinds of strings. I would say that in general, his music is getting more complex over the years. This album is a variety of musical styles, such as latin(Latinesque), upbeat jazz(Daddy-O), introspective (Villa di Costa, Zona Rosa) and whimsical (Green Tomatoes, Stereo). Some of my favorite tracks are Latinesque, Daddy-O, Sir W, Villa di Costa, and Turquoise. All in all, an excellent CD.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Once again Rick Braun has managed to exude his classy flavor on one of the hottest jazz numbers to hit stores this year. With songs such as Daddy O, Sir W, and The Villa De Costa, just to name my personal favorites, this C.D. belongs in the front of your collection. Believe me, when you own a Rick Braun jam it gets a lot of use because you listen to it all the time. He is one of the rare artists that entertain you throughout the whole C.D. and not just for two or three songs. I still don't know how Rick can continue to crank out fresh innovative songs in what seems to be an effortless fashion. I guess you would call it "smooth". And always expect him to have the best fellow artists on any of his endeavors like Norman Brown and Gerald Albright. That just proves that when your as good as Rick Braun, you must know it, so you don't have to "Toot your own horn" Anyway, thanks to Rick for taking the time to add to my collection again. I will treasure Esperanto forever. Right along with Night Walk, Full Stride and every C.D. he has ever made. You see, I know great music when I hear it.Was this review helpful?
