O’s Notes: Trumpeter, composer Douglas Olsen leads a swinging Latin-tinged bebop ensemble with a tight rhythm section featuring bassist Dave Zinno, pianist Tim Ray and drummer Mark Walker. The horns keep it lively with crisp, harmonized accents throughout the set from Dino Giovanni (t-sax, a-sax), Angel Subero (tb), Yaure Muniz (t) and Tucker Antell (t-sax).“Afro Bueno”, “Rat Race”, “Critical Mass” are among the many highlights in a strong 2¢.
