Introducing Altin Sencalar

Summer Jams Clearance Sale, Part 2

Not quite as compelling as Adrian Ruiz's bow, but satisfying in its own right is the debut from Austin trombonist Altin Sencalar. A straight-ahead affair of primarily originals, the comfortable sound centers around the leader and his rhythm section with a saxophone or trumpet included on some tracks. Pianist Ross Margitza proves a splendid foil as a soloist and graceful in a supporting role. Sencalar's funky "It's 2am" and Lee Morgan's "Ceora" lead the pack.
