CD of the Day - "Ari Borger: AB4"

CD of the Day
Ari Borger Quartet: "AB4" (ST2) 2007
Leading Marcos Klis (bass), Humberto Zigler (drums) and Mauricio Perdormo (guitar), plus some other guests as guitarist Nuno Mindelis (my former colleague at Varig Airlines), keybaordist Ari Borger uses Steinway D acoustic piano, Hammond organ (models B3 and A101), Fender Rhodes and clavinet on his second date as a leader.
Besides such Borger's originals as "Tributo a Oscar Peterson", "Acid Groove" and "Nem Vem, Miles" (which mixes Miles Davis and Carlos Imperial by including quotes of "So What?" and "Nem Vem Que Não Tem"), there are insteresting versions of Horace Silver's classic "Señor Blues", Thelonious Monk's anthem "Blue Monk" and Herbie Hancock's "Blind Man".
