All About Jazz CD Review 12/27/2013 by Dan McClenaghan

Most of jazz fusion groups of the 1970s threw more instruments into the mix than
flugelhornist, Al Moretti does on Origin. His Victory Jazz Quartet finds Moretti with
his horn fronting and a simple rhythm section-keyboard, bass and drums.
Fusion evolved from trumpeter Miles Davis' In a Silent Way (Columbia Records, 1969),
sparkling music woven with a tight tapestry of instrumentation, featuring three keyboards.
Moretti's pared-down approach allows the music more breathing room.
The title tune opens the disc, on a repeated four note bass riff from Chico Huff. The
sparkle is supplied by master keyboardist Ron Thomas. Moretti blows a warm and precise
flugelhorn through swirling backdrop of groove and mystery; and drummer Glenn Ferracone
lays down a tight time and a slew of idiosyncratic accents.
"Storm King" travels a darker terrain-ominous and furtive, and "High Time" departs from
the fusion muse with a sound that could pass for a bright Hugh Masakela tune, straight out
of Soweto. "Let Me Tell Ya" says get up and dance to Chico Huff's infectious groove; and
"Streamin' Through" sounds as if its floating in the clouds.
Then things get weird, in an excellent way on the fifteen minute closer "Mystic Traveler/
Orbit". Opening on an eerie synthesizer drone that migrates into an implacable groove. Ron
Thomas shines, and where in In a Silent Way seemed at times like a journey through a field
of stars, this tour de force sounds as if it's skirting the galaxy, going in the direction of the
dark matter, or perhaps driving deep into the galactic core, in the direction of the black hole.
Origin, from Al Moretti and his Victory Jazz Quartet, is an enticing take on the fusion
sound.
