O’s Notes: Pianist Falkner Evans leads a trio with bassist Belden Bullock and drummer Matt Wilson. They’re playing a mix of standards and originals. “Singing Darkness” has a relaxed swing accented by Bullock’s funky bass line. That leads into Coltrane’s “Central Park West” followed by Shorter’s “Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum” before they pick up the pace again with “Bar Enigma” where the band is fully warmed up and well lubricated. They keep the pace warm on “Come Rain or Come Shine” and the bubbly “Make Tracks, Child”. It is a well-rounded session
