JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2011 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Joe Magnarelli and the Antonio Ciacca Trio  at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

Trumpeter Joe Magnarelli, all the way from Syracuse, played with the Antonio Ciacca Trio last night at the Rochester Club Ballroom. We didn't know anything about Joe but had heard Ciacca a few other years and really like his piano playing. This didn't work on a number of levels. Why was it the trumpet player's gig? He had nothing to say. Ciacca, the bass player and drummer were great players but there was no excitement in the room whatsoever. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
