Toronto drummer Ernesto Cervini released REV on Anzic Records last week with his band Turboprop namely Tara Davidson and Joel Frahm on saxophones, William Carn on trombone, Adrean Farrugia on piano, and Dan Loomis on bass. As Cervini states, “although I am the band-leader, Turboprop truly feels like a collective due to the passion, commitment and love everybody brings to each performance.” REV features originals by Cervini, Farrugia, Loomis and Carn, as well as three covers: “Pennies from Heaven” dedicated to Cervini’s one year-old daughter Penelope, “No Rain” by Blind Melon and “The Daily Mail” by Radiohead. You can check out the EPK for the album below. REV can be found on Amazon and iTunes.
