Don Barrozo: Press

. . . The many styles that Don came so accustomed to in his youth, now show themselves on his debut release ‘Blue Talk’. Most of the compositions lie in the fusion/smooth jazz camp, but very loosely. There are many tinges of reggae, blues, pop, latin and bop scattered throughout. However, it is Don’s playing the makes the most distinguishing mark. His lines are clear and pure, his phrasing even. The warm tone that Don belts out is a perfect lead for the modern sounding music. Production is equally great, lush and easy swinging moods. Although the material is not exceptionally challenging – the music scores on a broader level. Casual pop fans, purists and everyone else will easily admire the great trumpet playing of Don Barrozo.
