Signed by GRP at a tender age in the early 1990s, young pianist Sergio Salvatore looked like he had a promising career ahead of him. Moving over to Concord for his third CD as a leader, he completed work on this trio date with bassist John Patitucci and drummer Peter Erskine a few weeks prior to celebrating his fifteenth birthday. He literally wails through a smoldering interpretation of the standard "What Is This Thing Called Love" and provides a nice solo spotlight for his drummer, offers a jaunty, inventive arrangement of Henry Mancini's "The Pink Panther" and a stunning pastoral setting of Rodgers & Hart's "Isn't It Romantic." Most of the album is devoted to originals written either by the pianist or his father and mentor, Luciano Salvatore; all of them are worth hearing. Always a Beginning remains his most impressive outing, and it has been far too long since Sergio Salvatore recorded a follow-up, aside from his 1997 CD for N2K. ~ Ken Dryden
