O’s Notes: Guitarist Tony Corman leads a trio with Ron Crotty on bass and Frank Phipps on bass trumpet. There are no drums or piano and they aren’t missed. This is an elegant combo that would serve well in the background or foreground for a sophisticated gathering. They play nine popular standards and two originals, Crotty’s “Roga Rugosa” and “Ron’s Muse” by Phipps. Highlights are “How Deep Is The Ocean” and “But Beautiful”. Frank’s melodies are warm and brassy, sweeter than a trombone but with more guys than a standard trumpet. This is great listening music!
