O’s Notes: Boy’s Night Out is Michael Treni’s fourth album as a leader since returning to the jazz scene nine years ago. He was a well-established trombonist, arranger writer and producer before he stepped away to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities in wireless technology. This is a fine effort with a band that continues to evolve including saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi. The band is powerful yet subtle in delivery making this an enjoyable listening experience, especially with the strings as on “Here’s That Rainy Day”. Treni includes a few originals notably “In My Quiet Time” to balance a warm set that is rich and inviting.
