Trombonist David Gibson worked with the Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band and Slide Hampton after arriving in New York City, though A Little Somethin' is his fourth CD as a leader. With Gibson joined by his working band consisting of alto saxophonist Julius Tolentino, organist Jared Gold, and drummer Quincy Davis, the focus is on the band's lively originals. Gibson penned five songs, beginning with the infectious Latin-flavored opener, "The Cobbler." Gibson's "Hot Sauce" is not Latin but funk-flavored, highlighted by robust solos from the leader and Gold. Tolentino contributed the percolating "One for Jackie," which blends bop with bossa nova in a driving setting. Gold's rapid-fire "In the Loop" charges out of the gate like commuters streaming from the subway during rush hour, with energetic solos by Tolentino, Gibson, and the composer. The sole standard is a loping treatment of "April in Paris," which deliberately clips the introduction of the theme and showcases the leader's expressive trombone. This fine all-around session is warmly recommended.
