O’s Notes: Before and After is a compilation of Lou’s work as a leader, composer and sideman. He touches many genres along the way including bossa nova, R&B, fusion and bebop. Most of the thirteen tunes are originals save two classic covers of ”Summertime” and “Stella By Starlight”. We also enjoyed “Precious Jewel”, “Solar Dance” and “Double Summer”. Volpe gets support from a strong team including Buddy Williams (d), Stanley Banks (b), and Gary Fritz (perc). It’s a guitar lovers dream and also a good easy-listening set.
