O’s Notes: John Chin plays piano and he has a good command of the keys. This is apparent on the opening title track, one of the best. Bassist Alex Cuadrado and drummer Bill Campbell keep things tight while Mark Turner improvises across the melodies on sax. They settle down on “Some Other Time” and “I Won’t Argue With You” one of three Chin originals. There are seven tracks, each well developed and easy to engage in. We found the music to be soothing, perfect to wind down with, especially the second half.
