Sometimes youâ€™re just looking for a little dinner-jazz and lots of subtlety. Moretto, an Argentine jazz guitarist based in New York, explores the sublime in his debut LP as a leader, pulling off some barely-there genius (the runs toward the end of â€˜Imagenesâ€™ almost sound electronically altered). His agility in the more traditionally bop-centric â€˜Iguazoâ€™ is another standout, full of friendly melodic banter that sax player Bill McHenry enhances with some wispy runs of his own. As a whole, the record â€“ entirely written by Moretto â€“ more than serves its purpose as a most companionable ally in getting through the commute or just having a pleasant damn day for yourself.
