Rich Corpolongo Trio – Get Happy
Delmark DE 592
Compact Disc (2010)
Jazz saxophonist Rich Corpolongo is back with his 3rd Delmark CD, Get Happy. The first two, Smiles (Delmark 502) and Just Found Joy (Delmark 489) featured Rich’s avant-garde as well as his mainstream jazz music and both received a four star rating from Down Beat. Get Happy is straight-ahead jazz in trio format (Rich Corpolongo, tenor sax; Dan Shapera, bass; Rusty Jones, drums) reminiscent of Sonny Rollins. Features two Charlie Parker compositions, “Chi Chi” and “Dewey Square” and eight standards including “Body And Soul”, “Get Happy” and “Lullaby Of The Leaves”.
