O’s Notes: Drummer and percussionist Rudy Royston leads a band that includes bassist Mimi Jones, guitarist Nir Felder and Jon Irabagon on saxophone. They play eleven Neo-bop/fusion selections, mostly Royston originals. We enjoyed the mellow syncopated vibe on “Prayer”, “Miles To Go”, the racy “Play on Words” and the relaxed title track. It is a fine balanced set.
