Editorial Reviews

Hailed by Newsweek for his pure melodic genius, Harrell is widely recognized as one of the most creative and uncompromising jazz instrumentalists and composers of our time. He is that rare improviser who never resorts to cliché, a talent who seems to have an unlimited reserve of melodic ideas. On ROMAN NIGHTS, Tom Harrell once again exhibits the talent, creativity and touch of genius which led the New York Times, Jazz Times and Entertainment Weekly to unanimously proclaim him "the premier trumpeter of his generation."

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Gem by Harrell and Killer Band April 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Overview:

Roman Nights is the 3rd release by Tom Harrell and his killer band (Danny Grissett on piano and Fender Rhodes, Wayne Escoffery tenor sax, Jonathan Blake drums, Ugonna Okegwo bass, and of course Harrell on trumpet). Roman Nights features the same lineup as the Harrell's recent classics "Light On", and "Prana Dance". This band is arguably the best in jazz today. Some people might be saying, "What? I haven't heard of most of these guys", but what band since 2007 has put out 3 better albums? While Grissett is quickly becoming a household name after after his stellar work with Harrell and Jeremy Pelt, the rest of the band is still somewhat unknown. However, don't let that discourage you from buying this CD. The entire band is top notch and it is just a matter of time before Escoffery busts out and becomes a star. The style of the CD is very similar to the last two recordings (Prana Dance, Light On). This recording is better than "Light On" and just as good as "Prana Dance", which is probably the best of the 3 recordings if I had to choose. Once again the music is groove based and Grissett splits time on acoustic piano and the Fendor Rhodes. The tunes once again feature both catchy melodies and crafty harmony. Grissett, Harrell, and Escoffery once again fill the album with fantastic solos. Two things differentiate this CD from the past two releases by this band. This album features Blake and Okegwo more than the last two albums, and this CD includes a ballad duet featuring Grissett and Harrell.

Song Highlights:

Bird in Flight: This tune is built around a section that features repetitive rhythmic stop and go two chord progression and some melodic interludes that join these sections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catnip February 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
People say the Holland band is the best jazz outfit now extant. But for my money Harrell's current group is #1. I've seen him live many times over the years but this group has so motivated and energized Tom that he's taken the group (and himself) into a whole different place. The last time I saw Holland I felt assaulted by the dense virtuousity of the band (chord changes every half bar, endlessly changing meters, etc.). It was boring too.

What this group does is paint a relatively simple but highly accessible picture and then go from there with very compelling and descriptive solos. Tom is in danger of being outdone by his own, youthful compadres!

Roman Nights and the previous 2 records are incredibly addictive. You'll find yourself scrolling down in iTunes every time to find these tunes. Just wonderful.

Tom Harrell's third release on HighNote feels like a suite. One thread joins all the tracks together to deliver one story narrated by one sound. Thanks Tom for sharing your beautiful stories.
