Roy Hargrove - Family



En Family, se distinguen las baladas The Nearness of You y Polka Dots And Moonbeams, donde Roy Hargrove luce el tono cálido y profundo de su trompeta que recuerda un poco el de Chet Baker, y el lirismo de Pas de Trois, de Paul Arslanian, tocada con una elegancia infinita. ***1/2
