    Non-specialist press coverage, even:
  3. Claudio Roditi RIP

    Yes, Roditi and Greg were well paired in various 90s recordings. He seems to have been at career peak around the dates you give.

  5. Claudio Roditi RIP

    Roditi was a superb trumpeter and seriously underappreciated IMHO. Saw him twice in the 1990s: at the Wigan Jazz Festival with his frequent partner Paquito D'Rivera in a phenomenally hot quintet with a Latin rhythm section (I came out saying it was like listening to the Adderleys, whom I'd heard 25 years earlier), and in the Gillespie United Nations Orchestra (lot of joshing with Diz who kept mispronouncing his name as Rodichi). Very sad to see him go.

    You would probably find that the second album is your kind of music, that is if Stan Getz, Anita O'Day and Annie Ross are your kind of music.
