“clean, buoyant playing…effervescent swing” – Time Out NY
Led by Toronto based drummer Ernesto Cervini, Turboprop is a hard-driving sextet featuring the stellar front line of Kelly Jefferson and Tara Davidson on saxophones with William Carn, trombone, and supported by Adrean Farrugia on keys.
Downbeat Magazine describes Cervini’s drumming as exemplifying, ‘float like a butterfly, sting like a bee’. He’s following in a long line of drummer led bands and Modern Drummer Magazine says, “Cervini recalls such old-schoolers as Art Blakey and Billy Higgins…his robust, magnetic personality fascinates consistently.” High praise indeed.
