Alberto Cebollero Trio opens for Gregory Porter
The Alberto Cebollero Trio was greeted to a standing ovation in advance of Gregory Porter's headline performance at the Fort Mose Jazz and Blues Series. On a beautifully lighted stage surrounded by ancient oak, the trio, featuring Jose Villalpando on bass and Stefan Klein on drums, treated listeners to a whirlwind set ranging from fiery uptempo swing to tender love ballads. Tunes like 'Sunny' called to mind Pat Martino's rendition, but with a brighter, grittier sound, while tunes like 'I Loves You Porgy' were delivered with space and grace. Closing out with Rihanna's 'Work' brought the trio's set to a frenzied climax.
