O’s Notes: Ted Kooshian is a pianist, composer, arranger and producer on Clowns Will Be Arriving. He is also a fan of nostalgia s evidenced by the inspiration and theme of this outing. He looks back at Baby Boomer TV Shows, fictional characters and past memories to fuel this program. The circus element is pervasive on “Three Clowns” and we get some Holiday cheer on “Christmas Day, My Favorite Day”, otherwise straight ahead jazz is the ticket. Ted dances across the keys on “Mannix” and Jeff Lederer has a fine sax solo on “Skylark”, just a couple of highlights in a set that has something for everyone.
