Overview

The Nuttree Quartet gets its name from the translation of drummer Adam Nussbaum's surname from German to English; joining him for this post-bop session are guitarist John Abercrombie, organist Gary Versace, and tenor saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi. Their set list draws from standards and time-tested jazz compositions that have been recorded numerous times, yet each interpretation comes across fresh. Versace's soft bossa nova arrangement of Duke Ellington's "Come Sunday" showcases Bergozni's soulful tenor. Another twist is the unaccompanied percussion introduction to Wayne Shorter's "Footprints," with Abercrombie and Versace slowly building steam. Abercrombie is the featured artist in the trio setting of John Carisi's intricate "Israel." Closing the session is a brief, moving performance of John Coltrane's "Naima." Highly recommended!
