One of my favorite instruments is the Vibraphone. In the hands of a master, it produces one of the most beautiful sounds. So when I hear Michael Pinto, a young, relatively unknown artist play I fell completely in love. He has a distinctly unique style which he showcases on his self titled debut album, Michael Pinto, filled with new compositions and special guest performers like one of my all time favorite sax men, Greg Osby and the heavely voice of Portuguese vocalist, Sara Serpa. The album is well worth a listen—fresh and joyous. I invite all you Jazz enthusiasts to visit http://www.innercirclemusic and take a listen to Michael and to some of the other amazing musicians on this relatively new label. It is well worth the visit.
