The new release features legendary guitarist John Scofield, as well as Jack DeJohnette, Uri Caine and Scott Colley

One of the most revered figures on the European jazz scene, Swiss trumpeter Franco Ambrosetti has maintained a strong affinity for the music since debuting as a leader in 1965 with A Jazz Portrait of Franco Ambrosetti. Now approaching his 78th birthday in December, Ambrosetti is still swinging after all these years, which is very much in evidence by his latest recording, Long Waves. An all-star session recorded in January 2019 in New York City, Ambrosetti’s 28th as a leader overall and second for the Swiss-based Unit Records features celebrated guitarist John Scofield, pianist Uri Caine, bassist Scott Colley, and legendary drummer Jack DeJohnette. Together they interact on an intimate level, displaying remarkable chemistry on seven tracks. “It was like a constant dialogue,” said Ambrosetti of the empathetic session. “After one rehearsal, I felt like I had played with this group every night for the last five years.”
