Frank Russo w/Pete BarenBregge
A Thousand Eyes

This is one burnin’ CD! The music is fresh and alive and makes you feel as though you’re sitting in the front row of a live concert. Pete BarenBregge’s sound is distinctive and crystal clear on all three saxes and his improvising style is wonderfully unique. Frank Russoøs innovative and creative style of drumming is a breath of fresh air on every tune. The whole band sounds fantastic! This record succeeds in taking you on a musical ride that covers so many different avenues of jazz while, at the same time, flowing from one song to the next like a carefully crafted symphony.
-Eric Marienthal

I’ve known saxophonist Pete the Heat, BarenBregge, for a good many years and his playing gets better each time I hear him. Great sound, nice tunes and groovin¡ all the way. Drummer Frank Russo lays down great funk, Latin and fierce swing grooves, too. This is a hot band from the DC area, check them out!
