O’s Notes: Contemporary jazz pianist Philippe Saisse creates a relaxing, soothing set of instrumentals with a couple of vocals. David Finck (b), Lenny Castro (perc), Jeff Golub (g) and Rick Braun (t) are a few of the notable musicians that join Saisse for At World’s Edge. We liked “Monday Afternoon” though we are always startled about 15 seconds into it! We also enjoyed the peacefulness of “At World’s Edge”; the island beats of “Assante Sana” and the upbeat funky groove of “Roppongi Blues”. You can always relax with the cool breeze of “Topanga Moon Dance”, out favorite in a strong contemporary session.
