Enrico Rosa is best known to prog fans for his 1970's work with the band Campo di Marte, a band I must admit to never having heard of before. This link with Prog music is perhaps what could attract most of our readers to Boston Gig by Argenti & Rosa because the music featured on that album is in no way to being close to Progressive Rock or Fusion.
What can be heard on Boston Gig is a traditional Jazz Quartet in the "Guitar - Piano - Bass - Drums" form and a very good one indeed. The guitar mostly takes the role of leader with the piano not far behind. The bass and drums also get their moments to shine. I would describe the music on Boston Gig as relaxed while still being energetic (a bit paradoxal I know). The compositions are great, the musicians of the highest level and the recording excellent but you have to be a Jazz lover (which I am) to really enjoy this CD. Fans of "Metheny - Meldau" or even "Oscar Peterson with Joe Pass" should really check this album out. Highly recommended indeed.
