O’s Notes: Drive Time is Dubaniewicz’ debut as a solo artist and he celebrates in style with a collection of standards and couple of originals. They open up swinging hard on Freddie Hubbard’s “Hubtones”. Ron Oswanski is working the B3 giving this set a solid cool jazz feel and guitarist Jeff Barone is on top of his game as part of a strong band. Mike shows us his romantic aide on “I Can’t Get Started” and “Just Friends”. Barone, Oswanski, drummer Vince Ectot and Dubaniewicz really cook on “Wee”. They end with the title track that serves as a showcase for the entire band.
