Grasso-Ravita Jazz Ensemble

"A delightfully spent hour of the funkiest, wildest yet cool, intimate and caressing jazz you’ve heard in ages... It was chemistry at first chord, melody, groove and listen."  Jonathan Wdran

“GRASSO RAVITA JAZZ ENSEMBLE/Jagged Spaces delivers a modern sound that has roots in fusion--but the roots go deep. With a sound that sounds like it was burnished on the road and in the clubs, this is a smoking crew that knows how to pack them in. Add a bunch of cigarette smoke and some waitresses dressed in black and you have the whole package. Smart stuff.”- Chris Spector, Midwest Record  http://midwestrecord.com/MWR1723.html

Bassist Phil Ravita, co-leads a quintet with guitarist Skip Grasso along with Greg Small/p, Nuc Vega/dr and Benny Russell/ts-ss on a collection of originals. The team is intuitive and telepathic, and the writing mixing up the delivery like a 9th inning closer. Impressive sounds. - by George W. Harris • February 25, 2021
