From 5 After 4 comes six. This highly-acclaimed veteran Toronto contemporary jazz combo makes a welcome return to recording with a sixth album that showcases the sound of four guys playing at the top of their game. The happy outcome is Rome In A Day. The album is a masterful and delightfully diverse collection of all-original new 5 After 4 material. The group's founder and driving force, drummer/composer Vito Rezza, contributes 6 compositions, long-time keyboardist Matt Horner chimes in with four numbers, and the freewheeling "Animal Crackers" is credited to all four members.
Capturing the group at the height of its powers, and in a dynamic setting, Rome In A Day is a memorable and soulful jazz fusion recording. Dave Wayne, All About Jazz
