Arbors, 2002, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Swing
O’s Notes: The combination of Chuck’s vibraphone with Gene Bertoncini’s guitar rings with soothing sweetness on the opener, a strong hint of what follows. George Mraz anchors the lower registers on bass while Ken Peplowski adds sax and clarinet on four songs. The program includes ballads like “Indian Summer” and the Latin spirit of “Barbados”. It swings hard enough to put a smile on your face.
