SCCD 31591 Tony Purrone Trio "Incubation"
Tony Purrone belongs to a special rank of guitarists whose awesome skill and blinding velocity can co-exist with deep musical sensitivity and creativity. On this his seventh release on SteepleChase Purrone is whole-heartedly on jazz groove.
For his Six-String Delight (SCCD 31438) album, JazzTimes' Bill Mikowski wrote," A monster guitarist, Purrone displays his prodigious technique on this celebration of 10 jazz guitar innovators.A wonderful sampler for jazz guitar fans and an admirable showcase for this criminally under-recognized six-string virtuoso."
And Jim Ferguson of JazzTimes commented on Rascality album (SCCD 31514), ".it's important to know that his musical abilities run deep and encompass musicality, creativity and the ability to swing, traits It should be understood that while Purrone does possess awesome skills, he doesn't overly lean on them. He usually exercises restraint, calling upon them when they fit into his emotional and concept ional scheme. "
