Description:The December 2nd Quartet is a very special group that consists of pianist/singer Dena DeRose, trumpeter Dominick Farinacci, bassist Ray Drummond and drummer and co-producer Akira Tana. This is their first recording in five years and second to be released by Stars Music of Japan, and features guest pianist Benny Green.

And what a wonderful album this is! The theme of the CD is stars, the moon and the future, and they play many tunes with a "star" in their titles. The mood is romantic and mellow, but the program is never boring because of the high level of musicianship and changes of pace and instrumentations.

DeRose sings on eight of 11 tunes, leaving the other three as instrumentals. Wonderful guest pianist Benny Green appears on four tunes, including two beautiful duets with Farinacci ("Stardust") and DeRose ("When You Wish Upon A Star"). Among familar standards we see less often performed gems like "A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes" from Disney's Cinderella, "Stars" written by Fred Heirsch and Norma Winstone, and "Like A Star," a recent hit by British singer Corrine Bailey Rae.

The emotive singing of DeRose, beautifully controlled trumpet of Farinacci, sensitive and tasteful drumming by Tana, and in-the-pocket and deep-sounding bass of Drummond, everything come together to make a superb album. The quality of the sound is also very good. Very enthusiastically recommended to fans of straight ahead jazz!
