Album: The Emotional Touch
Review by Bryan Rodgers
Jazz as an art form is becoming less and less prevalent in the United States and, arguably, the world. It’s getting tougher and tougher to make a name playing such sounds, and a good number of special musicians are being ignored. Phenomenal players, such as Leonardo La Peruta, are always making fine music that flies beneath even the most attuned jazz radar. His quartet’s first release, The Emotional Touch, is a disarmingly playful, mentally engaging collection of original tunes that features loads of dynamic group interplay
