O’s Notes: Tony’s organ trio is cooking again with Bruce Forman on guitar and Adam Nussbaum on drums. They play that cool jazz club sound centered on Monaco’s B3. He makes it sing on “Rudy and the Fox” where Byron Rooker also chips in on sax. He hangs around to lead “Don’t Be That Way”, a warm ballad. Whether there are 3 or 4 members the band is well integrated and on the money. Monaco has another winner.
