AMIGOS TODOS

by Al Molina

" It is obvious that this is an infectious session with catchy Latin Rhythms, high- quality solos and an irresistible group spirit. Molina's skilled trumpet and flugelhorn delves out a warm and polished sound with experienced control." - Scott Yanow

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Straight from the Heart "

"Al Molina's album, "Straight From The Heart", is exactly That...........so lyrical,sensitive to the point of being "fragile" yet on fire throughout. It's been a long time since I've heard such pretty, honest music released, seemingly unaffected by all of the heavy industry marketing currently going on. I hope the entire world gets to hear this beautful album ....." Bobby Shew

"One of the most lyrical,tasteful and melodic trumpet players on the jazz scene today" ........LarryVuckovich:

"The Gift "

"As a jazz expression, it is a positive experience. At first listening I find your sound ( and I definitely mean this as a compliment) very comparable to Tom Harrell's."...............Orrin Keepnews

"The blend between Molina ( who doubles on flugel horn) and Al Bent is appealing and the music is often gentle even when the tempoes are a little hotter. Recommended." .............Scott Yanow, LA JAZZ SCENE

"Amigos Todos "

" It is obvious that this is an infectious session with catchy Latin Rhythms, high- quality solos and an irresistible group spirit." Scott Yanow

"Molina's skilled trumpet delves out a warm and polished sound with experienced control. His flugelhorn glows." ... Mark F. Turner, Jazz Improv Magazine
