Review for the Mike Baggetta Trio:

Mike Baggetta is a guitarist making some of the most beautiful and innovative music you’ll hear on the electric guitar. His musical style is jazz blended with rock, electronica, and country influences that creates a sound that is unique and universal simultaneously. Mike will be bringing some pretty heavy guns in bassist Jerome Harris and drummer Billy Mintz. Jerome played both bass and guitar for years with Sonny Rollins. He has also recorded and/or performed live on six continents with such jazz notables as Jack DeJohnette, Bill Frisell, Ray Anderson, Don Byron, Bobby Previte, Oliver Lake, Amina Claudine Myers, Bob Stewart, George Russell, Julius Hemphill, and Bob Moses. Billy Mintz has played in the bands of everyone from Lee Konitz in the 70s to Mike Garson (of David Bowie fame) to Charles Lloyd.
