O’s Notes: Composer and pianist Al Thompson, Jr. has been influenced by a wide variety of artists. It all comes through in this diverse set that swings start to end. It is a cool mix of contemporary and modern jazz tunes. All of them resonated with us. Thompson does a good job with both contemporary and traditional jazz sets making City Mainstream acceptable to a broad audience and worthy of 4 stars.
