O’s Notes: The band is Jon Blanck (sax), Matt Oestreicher (p), Tatum Greenblatt (t), Elias Bailey (b) and Josh Feldstein (d) with a few guests adding spice on a few tracks each notably guitarist Peter Bernstein. These guys cook, especially on tunes like “You And The Night And The Music” and “Jitterbug Waltz”. The arrangements are fresh, the solos are distributed amongst the band and they are tight. Yes, we enjoyed it, swinging from start to finish.
