O’s Notes: Pianist Kenny Werner leads a trio with bassist Johannes Weidenmueller and Ari Hoenig on drums. The seven compositions, all written by Werner, have a funky neobop feel that feels right regardless of the tempo. We particularly liked the opener “Little Blue Man”. It’s a live set recorded during 2000 at the Sunside Club in Paris. It’s a cool new groove.
