O’s Notes: Prester plays the piano, leads the band, composed and produced all of the music except for a cover of “Giant Steps”. Nicky Orta makes a strong statement on bass both anchoring the rhythms and taking the lead as on “Vincenzo’s Blues”. There’s a taste of calypso on “Beneath Wind’s Shadow” and a swinging groove that is held together by Prester on “Toy Soldiers”. These are only a few of the gems on Dogtown, a winning set!
