O’s Notes: Don (sax) leads his quartet with pianist Xavier Davis, Dwayne Burno on bass and the energetic Cecil Brooks III (d). They catch the groove on “Invitation” and swing on “My Favorite Things”. Braden captures the spirit of both Stanley Turrentine and Grover Washington, Jr. with dedicated songs for each. These new arrangements and originals make a nice upbeat session.
