Review, "Easy Street"
by Lisa Rogers 

Easy Street features the duo of vibraphonist Carl Rigoli and pianist John Rodby.  All compositions and arrangements on the recording are by Rigoli: "Easy Street," "Ryan's Song," "Lepore Stomp," "Ballad for Karen," "Mr. Rigley and Mr. Rodney," "Presto Pasta," "Three Step Bossa," "Angela," "Ditmars Blvd," and "Is that So."

The title of the disc is very appropriate to the feeling one gets when listening to this jazz duo; "you're on easy street."  The beautiful, sonorous quality of Rigoli's vibraphone playing is balanced perfectly with the piano stylings of Rodby.  Both performers are equally adept at soloing, completing the package and making for an outstanding recording.
