O’s Notes: Guitarist Torben Waldorff leads a quintet of seasoned musicians including Matt Clohesy (b), Donny McCaslin (sax), Jon Cowherd (p) and Jon Wikan (d). They open with the syncopated rhythms of “Shark” showcasing McCaslin. Cowherd sets the mood for “Waves” with the Fender Rhodes imparting a retro fusion feel. Midway through the set, they are playing more relaxed ballads some of which have a southwestern flare. “Song-Ella” is more upbeat with Waldorff leading the melody and also adding shadowing vocals. Torben wrote and produced all of the music here creating a warm, relaxing session.
