O’s Notes: Pianist Sharon Minemoto leads a potent rhythm section with bassist Darren Radtke and drummer Bernie Aria. Saxophonist Jon Bentley shares melodies with Minemoto over twelve songs. This band is a well-oiled machine with lots of swing and a vibrant theme that resonates throughout the entire session. “Color Contrast”, “Supermoon”, and “Changes” are examples of the musicians playing what they feel and engaging listeners in an enjoyable set.
